Investment Strategies

Flagship Investment Strategy | Weekly E-mini Program (WEP)

  • Featured S&P 500 option strategy with a proven track record of delivering consistent absolute returns

  • Target 20% returns per year with no more than 7% annual volatility

  • Primarily focus on short duration derivatives- the option expires within 2-8 days, because the time decay is the greatest in these final days. It does this primarily by identifying the option strikes with best risk/reward ratio.

Past results are not necessarily indicative of future result. Trading futures and options involves substantial risk of loss and is not suitable for all investors. The possibility of unlimited loss exists in writing options. You should therefore carefully consider whether such trading is suitable for you in light of your financial condition.

Other Investment Strategies

All Season Program (ASP)

The All Season Program utilizes a hedging mechanism more aggressively than WEP by trading long options closer to the market. In a downward trending market, the hedging module may contribute bigger profits to the entire program.

Metis Tactical ES (MTE)

Metis Tactical ES is guided by a proprietary data-driven, highly stable quantitative trading model developed to trade the E-mini S&P 500 futures. Risk management is built in five separate sub-models, which contain more models within them.
