Managed futures is the professionally-directed, systematic or discretionary trading that offers access to the dynamic global futures markets through the use of professional money managers called Commodity Trading Advisors (CTAs). Federally licensed and registered, CTAs who manage investors' assets using investments in the futures markets just as a stock mutual fund manager would invest his clients' assets in a variety of different stocks.
CTAs use their own proprietary trading methods and money management techniques to establish market positions in commodity, financial futures and foreign currency markets around the world. This broad geographic exposure allows for participation in market trends and economic events worldwide. Futures exchanges exist globally, resulting in around-the-clock opportunity.
CTAs follow a long-term plan based on extensively tested research that attempts to limit losses on losing positions while letting profits run on profitable positions. In most cases, CTAs commit full-time attention to markets; this is their only job. Many CTAs follow a definitive system. They analyze market prices and trends; acting immediately based upon signals and market knowledge. CTAs expect both winning and losing trades. Neither result will influence CTAs to deviate from prudent money management and his trading plan.
Note: Futures and Forex trading is speculative in nature and involves substantial risk of loss. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results. Adding managed futures to a portfolio may not result in higher returns nor reduced volatility for each investor, it depends on the CTA that is selected.
