The Mobius Asset Management X-Ceed Program selects and trades from a list of over 25 major commodities and futures contracts including financial, metals, softs, grains and energies. Trades are selected by the manager based on his experience. Usually no more than 10 different commodities will be traded at a time. Trading decisions are a combination of technical indicators, various time periods, money management principles and the overall experience of the manager.


Accounts are offered and traded in $150,000 units. Currently all trading is on a single contract basis per unit.

John McLane views risk management as important as returns. In order to maintain appropriate levels of risk and account volatility, the trading manager monitors the portfolio continuously throughout the course if each trading day. There is an attempt to anticipate sources of risk for each commodity and trade. Specific modeling tools are adapted to minimize risk and there are stop losses on every trade. Various profit objectives are used, depending on the commodity and the market in general. The trade itself is not necessarily so important, but making money is basic and the predominant goal.

The Program determines position size as a function of both individual commodity volatility and total portfolio volatility. As volatility increases, position size will tend to decrease and when volatility decreases, position size will increase. The margin to equity ratio will be approximately 20-30%.

    (P) - Proprietary Trading Results (C) - Client Trading Results

    1. Rate of Returns are calculated from the start date of each program. Usually returns are calculated based on the Annual Compounded Rate of Return method. In some cases returns have been calculated on an Non-Compounded basis. This would occur when a Manager trades based on account unit rather than on account equity.

         The Annual Compound Rate of Return ("Annual CROR") represents the compounded rate of return or each year or portion thereof presented. It is computed by applying successively respective monthly rate of return for each month beginning with the first month of that period.

         Annual Rate of Return ("Annual ROR") is calculated adding each month's return.

    2. The Worst Peak-to-Valley Drawdown ("Worst Drawdown") is defined as the greatest cumulative percentage decline in net asset value due to losses sustained by the trading program during any period in which the initial net asset value is not equaled or exceeded by a subsequent asset value.

    3. The Current Losing Streak ("Losing Streak") represents the extent of the Adviso'rs current drawdown.

    4. Sharpe Ratio is a risk adjusted ratio that rewards consistancy of returns. Traders are penalized for volatility regardless of whether it is onthe up or downside. The Sharpe Ratios is calculated using a 1% risk-free rate of return.

    5. Assets Under Management ("AUM") represents the current nominal assets traded by the Manager.

    6. Calmar Ratio represents the historical amount gained for each dollar risked. A higher number is better. Unless otherwise denoted the Calmar Ratio is calculated by dividing the 36 month Compounded ROR by the 36 month Peak to Valley Drawdown. Traders with less than 36 months of data or a negative Calmar Ratio will be indicated by N/A.

    7. Margin to Equity ("Margin") represents the average margin as a percent of a fully funded account.

    8. The Average Commission ("Avg Comm") represents the average commission rate of the composite track record. A higher or lower commission rate would increase or decrease the performance accordingly.

    9. Maximum Commission ("Max Comm") is the Maximum Round Turn Rate allowable by the Manager.

    10. Round Turns per Million ("Round Turns") represent the average number of round turns that would be generated in a $1,000,000 account.
