Program Description: JT Hodgson's trading methods are proprietary and confidential. The following description is of necessity and is not intended to be exhaustive. The Advisor will employ a quantitative based strategy that stems from technical analysis and advanced mathematics to determine entry and exit points. Pre-determined conditions must be fully met prior to the establishment of a position. Due to the 24-hour trading availability of the global spot currency market, trades may be opened and closed at any time, with exception from Friday 5pm to Sunday 1pm. JT Hodgson places a large emphasis on technical analysis due to the normalized distribution of the FX market. The statistical reliability of the global spot currency market allows for the application of technical indicators and mathematical calculations. Technical analysis in theory states that a study of current and historical market prices will provide a means of anticipating future prices. In addition to Fibonnaci values, JT Hodgson incorporates the following indicators in their trading system: Linear Regression, Commodity Channel Index, Parabolic SAR and ADX. Although current trading strategies have yielded profitable results, JT Hodgson continues to place emphasis on developing new ideas - both systematic and discretionary. JT Hodgson reserves the right to modify or change trading methods and strategies at any time without prior notice to or approval by its clients. There can be no guarantee that JT Hodgson's approach to trading the global spot currency market will yield the same results as it has in the past. JT Hodgson applies strict money management principles to its trading program. The program always utilizes stop-loss orders once a trade has been established to minimize the down-side drawdown risk to each trade. Stop-Loss points are pre-determined before entering a trade based on technical indicator levels. Leverage is employed using 10% of the equity in each account to trade; however under some conditions leverage levels may reach 15% or more.
