The trading program utilizes the principal's 20+ years experience trading in the futures markets in order to develop a multi-strategy and multi-market approach to trading both commodity futures and options on futures trading.
Commodity Option Trading
- The option strategies include a variety of different spreads such as verticals, calendars, ratios, strangles, and straddles amongst others. The program will also outright sell or 'write' an option in certain situations.
Seasonal and spread trading
- We seek to profit from seasonal patterns inherent in various commodity markets. The trades taken may be outright long (buy) and short (sell) positions or spread trades between two similar commodities. Seasonal trading may also employ the use of buying and/or selling options.
Stock Market timing
- We have developed a proprietary program for trading the stock market. We may take a long position when a buy signal is generated for the stock market and may take a short position when a sell signal is generated.
HB Capital Management believes that the development of a commodity trading strategy is a continual process. As a result of further analysis and research into the performance of our methods, changes have been made from time to time in the specific manner in which these trading methods evaluate price movements in various commodities, and it is likely that similar revisions will be made in the future. Of course, no assurances can be made that any trading strategies will produce profitable results.
