Superfund Green, L.P. Series A seeks to achieve capital appreciation by investing in global futures and equities markets by utilizing a proprietary, fully-systematic trading system, which trades in around 150 futures markets, automatically sends buy and sell signals, and constantly monitors relevant risk factors on the traded futures and equities markets in the U.S.A., Europe, and Asia. The Fund's trading philosophy takes into account market diversification, technical analysis, trend following, and money management. Money Management: Consistent risk management represents the most important element of the Superfund trading strategy. It limits initial risk per trade to a pre-determined maximum of 1.0 percent of the fund's total assets. In addition, the trading systems continuously screen volatility and adjust portfolio exposure accordingly.
Superfund funds trade futures in many financial centers around the globe. Bonds, stock indices and currencies are traded as well as commodites like crude oil, gold, wheat, coffee, cattle and cotton. The Superfund trading systems are able to choose from around 150 futures markets worldwide and are constantly on the lookout for attractive investment opportunities. Diversification is also achieved by a low correlation between the individual traded contracts.
The Superfund trading strategy uses self-developed, fully-automated computerized trading systems. The systems use a wide array of technical indicators to identify price patterns offering a high probability of success. Based on these price patterns, the trading systems automatically issue real time buy and sell orders.
Trend Following Strategies:
The Superfund trading systems were designed primarily to profit from price trends. The lifespan of these trends varies; some last for a few days, others for several months. The key to success lies in limiting draw downs through the continual updating of stop-loss orders. In this way, if a trend reverses, losses can be limited; if a trend continues, profits can accumulate.
