Hyman Beck & Company

FastTrac Portfolio

There is no performance data for this program

Hyman Beck & Company’s trading program relies primarily on technical analysis which emphasizes mathematical and charting approaches rather than fundamental. The trading methodologies employ were developed by Mr. Beck and Mr. Hyman. Although very systematic in their approach room is left for a certain amount of subjective judgement to be employed. Hyman Beck will also incorporate various risk management techniques to help limit losses, control market exposure and maximize profits. This includes identifying neutral modes for certain trendless markets that would dictate no positions be taken a particular contract or contract group. Trading portfolios and position sizes are continually adjusted based on market volatility, prices of commodities, amount of risk, potential return and margin requirements. The Asset Allocation Portfolio originally evolved from the intent of the principals to optimize participation in the Diversified, FX, and Global portfolios. The strategy employed by the principals is to allocate assets actively among the three original portfolios in order to exploit opportunities in different risk/reward characteristics and performance cycles of the individual portfolios. This portfolio may engage, in varying degrees, the Diversified, FX and Global Portfolios or some subset thereof. The allocation decisions are made by the principals of Hyman Beck with the aid of certain research studies, and combined experience, in an effort to minimize risk and maximize profit opportunities.
