Granularity Alpha is a quantitative Trading Portfolio comprised of non correlated "Sub-portfolios". Each of these is made up of several strategies with different trading approaches and proprietary Money Management. The Investment Philosophy is based on the premise that high amount of profitable low risk trades, while controlling global market exposure, delivers high risk-adjusted returns. Another assumption is that market prices tend to alternate between periods of range expansion and range contraction that can be forecasted and therefore different styles of trading strategies could be used to exploit this behavior.
These strategies work on different time frames, from minutes to daily bars. Options on futures may be purchased to hedge specific positions. This program does not sell options. Although the strategies have a broad scope, specific markets have been selected according to liquidity constraints, nature and particularities of markets and correlation analysis. Currently the program trades US and UE Index Futures and Eurex Interest rate futures.
