Strategy Description

RLA uses discretionary grain trading strategies driven by fundamental research and technical analysis. This analysis aims at identifying distorted market conditions, particularly in the deferred contract months. RLA mainly trades the soybean crush: the spreads between soybeans, soybean meal, and soybean oil.

RLA’s trading edges come from applying his soybean cash and futures industry experience, contacts, seasonal research, and analysis to crush and spread trading. The main risk management edges include monitoring and controlling of position size, correlation and drawdowns specific to soybean crush and grain spread trading.

County Cork believes that RLA’s strategy will identify soybean crush and other grain market spread trading opportunities with attractive risk-adjusted returns.
