Matic Program uses on average 5% margin-to-equity.  In dollar amount, a single trade unit of the program would use about $12,500 in margin usage.  Futhermore, the program holds no overnight margin 60% of the time.  This allows investors to easily cross-margin in their portfolio and keeps them flexible.  We understand what CTA investors want : Low margin usage with high returns on capital.

 

 

Matic Program return on margin ratio is 4.5.  Rule of thumb for margin ratio is anything above 1 draws interest.

 

2013 return was 22.61%.  This percentage is based on trade level of $250k.  However, average margin usage was only a mere $12,500.  In another word, return on actual funds being used was over 400%.  Notional funding is at $50k per unit size, making return on notional over 100%.

Outlook

In today’s market conditions we find looking far ahead is asking for unnecessary risk. World economy news, natural disasters, and anything in between are impossible to predict and not worth the risk. Matic Progam predicts short-term movement in price. It aims to forecast gold and other precious metals on a daily basis. The program uses various linear and non-linear modeling of advanced regression analysis to show correct intraday direction. This method, coupled with precious metals daily volatility, has brought successful returns since programs inception on June 2010. Quantitative modeling allows us to structure our risk management with precision and not let outside sources in metals sector affect our trading. Instead we take advantage of the incoming volatility in price levels.

 

 

Strategy

Matic Program seeks to be a unique addition to a clients portfolio. The program trades strictly gold and other metals futures contract and is 100% systematic. The program analyzes trends, breakouts, reversals/pivots, and momentum movement to determine entry and exit points. Typically, seventy five percent (75%) of the positions are initiated and exited on the same trading day. Positions held overnight are typically exited within a few trading days. Since its inception on prop account in June 2010 the program has not had a losing year. Main reason is the programs rigorous risk management to limit drawdowns and know when to exit a trade, regardless of market conditions. Precious metals market has high liquidity and volatility making trading opportunities come often.

 

 

Risk Management

Risk is managed in various ways. The Program will exit trades by applying a stop or trailing loss per trade to limit drawdowns and wait for next opportunity. The following trade will use the previous loss and market conditions as a calculation to optimize the current trade’s stop or trailing loss input. Additionally, the Program surveys risk factors such as sharpe ratios, risk-adjusted returns, volatility and correlation analysis, and tail loss statistics. These progress reports determine the direction the model takes to limit drawdowns.
