Today’s managed futures investors face a dizzying array of information and choices. According to BaclayHedge there are over 1150 Commodity Trading Advisors reporting monthly performance to them.

As the industry has grown, so too have the number of tools, software packages, websites, companies and individuals offering their products and services to help Managed Futures investors succeed, but the problem is that most of what is available is incomplete or of questionable value. This is not only unhelpful to investors, but in many cases leads to worse than random results.

The mission of our Managed Futures research project is to provide investors with the best analysis, tools, software, data and techniques to empower them beyond the limitations of current Managed Futures decision support software, products and services.

Risk Disclosure

There are substantial risks and conflicts of interests associated with Managed Futures and commodities accounts, and you should only invest risk capital. The success of an investment is dependent upon the ability of a commodity trading advisor (CTA) to identify profitable investment opportunities and successfully trade. The identification of attractive trading opportunities is difficult, requires skill, and involves a significant degree of uncertainty. CTAs have total trading authority, and the use of a single CTA could mean a lack of diversification and higher risk. The high degree of leverage often obtainable in commodity trading can work against you as well as for you, and can lead to large losses as well as gains. Returns generated from a CTA’s trading, if any, may not adequately compensate you for the business and financial risks you assume. You can lose all or a substantial amount of your investment. If you use notional funding, you may lose more than your initial cash investment. Managed Futures and commodities accounts may be subject to substantial charges for management and advisory fees. It may be necessary for accounts that are subject to these charges to make substantial trading profits in order to avoid depletion or exhaustion of their assets. The disclosure document contains a complete description of each fee to be charged to your account by a CTA. CTAs may trade highly illiquid markets, or on foreign markets, and may not be able to close or offset positions immediately upon request. You may have market exposure even after the CTA has a request for closure or liquidation. PAST PERFORMANCE IS NOT NECESSARILY INDICATIVE OF FUTURE RESULTS.
