Program Description: The Advisor employs technical, systems-based trading strategies to make 100% of its trading decisions. Technical analysis is based on the theory that a study of the markets themselves (rather than fundamental economic factors like supply and demand) will provide a means of anticipating futures prices. Technical analysis of the markets often includes a study of the actual daily, weekly and monthly price volume and open interest data and may use charts and/or computer programs to analyze such data. The Advisor currently employs seven distinct systems to trade customer accounts. The Advisor selected these systems from many it has developed and tested on the basis of their superior risk, performance, and robustness attributes. Since each system was developed on unrelated trading approaches, they are all quite different from each other. However, each system adheres to the Advisor's overall strategic philosophy of buying strength and selling weakness. In addition, none of the Advisor's systems are based on curve-fitting. Each system, when run across all markets with one parameter setting, achieves a composite profitability in multiple time settings. The Advisor tested all seven systems on each market and chose the best system for each market based on its risk, performance, and robustness attributes. In essence, the systems compete for the right to trade a market. The Advisor applies a simple portfolio approach to the system/market pairings that evolved from these tests to determine the number of contracts traded on each market for each account.
