I’m Recommending Investing in These Specific Managed Futures Fund Products on a Drawdown

This recommendation is intended for Qualified Eligible Participants, sophisticated enough to understand the risks in managed futures and derivative investments.

I am issuing a recommendation to invest in certain trend following models, particularly those who have experienced a drawdown over the near to mid term time horizon.

For fund structure or direct account investments who have experienced drawdowns, I’m recommending Milburn, Fort, Welton, Ekhardt, TransTrend, Winton and Clarke Capital. (Members can reach out to me for specific programs recommended.)

For managed futures mutual funds, I’m recommending AQR, Goldmam and Longboard.

Let’s watch the performance of these investments over the near term.

In the short volatility strategy I will also be making recommendations to invest on a drawdown and will release those next week.

I have specific reasons for these recommendations at this moment in time.  If interested, members can send an e-mail to and confirm your QEP status.  I will want to know your background and what you are trying to accomplish in managed futures investing and you will be provided detailed analysis and logic for these recommendations and how they fit into a diversified managed futures portfolio.

    Please consider Sunrise Capital Partners as well. Just came out of very challenging June flat and still up healthily for the year. In midst of an ongoing drawdown like names mentioned above but recovery continues to build due to better markets and improved investment approach that we’re happy to discuss. Note our performance YTD in the Altegris CTA challenge for example —
