Managed Futures Funds
Some investors seeking to diversify into different asset classes are turning to managed futures funds. The fund managers are also known as ‘commodity trading advisor (CTA) ’. CTAs generally manage the clients assets by going long or short in futures contracts in areas such as metals (gold, silver), grains (soybeans, corn, wheat, etc), equity indexes (like S&P futures, Dow futures, etc), soft commodities (cotton, cocoa, coffee, sugar), interest rates, government bonds as well as foreign currencies futures. The Funds mainly aim to profit from upward and downward price trends in these global futures markets.
There is a systematic approach by using historical technical and fundamental data to anticipate future and price movements. Such strategies rely heavily on computer generated, technical trading signals. Like other investments, the performance of managed futures funds is not guaranteed and past performance is not indicative of future performance.
