This type of investment is suitable for investors who wish to participate and potentially profit from markets moving in both up or down directions as our systems trade both long and short (bet the market going higher or lower). This means that when normal investments such as property or buy and hold share portfolios are doing poorly, our trading systems could potentially be doing very well. In fact it is typical for our suite of systems to do very well in an environment where other forms of investment are struggling such as in 2007 and 2008. This is why it is important for you to at least have a small portion of your overall investment capital exposed to this type of investment. Including one of our futures trading systems investments therefore gives you an opportunity to both reduce the risk of your overall portfolio and in addition increase returns.
Minimum Starting Capital
Our systems typically require a minimum investment capital of $20k USD (or equivalent) to trade a 1-2 system portfolio. Whilst this is the minimum our trading system investments are ideal for clients with portfolios of $100k USD (or equivalent) or more as these investors are able to diversify across multiple markets and systems to achieve a more favourable risk:reward profile.
At face value our hypothetical and real time returns look exceptional to date. We have the potential to achieve high returns with our trading systems because futures are a leveraged product and should be considered to be at the upper end of the risk spectrum. It is true that to achieve a high return, you need to take a high level of risk. We therefore recommend that you should only allocate a portion of your overall investment capital to this type of investment due to it’s inherently risky nature and volatile return profile. Whilst there is potential for high returns there is also risk of loss in trading futures or investing into a futures trading system.
If you fit the criteria above and accept the risky nature of this type of investment then this investment maybe suitable for you.
