Investment Strategy

J.D Turner Capital’s Diversified Trend Following Strategy seeks to combine traditional and modern trend following to find stronger trends and weaker correlation. The methodology offers market-neutral exposure to a broad market of commodities, interest rate, currency, and stock index futures within 17 traded markets. The system uses a systematic approach in risk management, deploying systematic option hedging tactics. Capital is dynamically allocated within our strategy based on account size, averaged volatility metrics, correlation and potential directional risk. The trend models used to trade each market are technical; based purely on price and price derivative data.
 

The 17 traded markets include but are not limited to:

  1. Australian Dollar Futures
  2. British Pound Futures
  3. Euro FX Futures
  4. Corn
  5. Soybeans
  6. Wheat
  7. Natural Gas
  8. Crude Oil
  9. Live Cattle
  10. Feeder Cattle
  11. Lean Hogs
  12. Russell 2000 Index
  13. S&P 500 Index
  14. Gold
  15. Silver
  16. 2 Year U.S Treasury Note
  17. 5 Year U.S Treasury Note


The original model (from Jan 2020 to Dec 2021) was based on pure trend following and has evolved to include new risk management models employed in January 2022 to reduce volatility and risk. The current model uses a systematic approach in risk management, deploying systematic option hedging tactics, in addition to lower margin-equity targets from 30% to 15%.

Since inception of new risk management models, max drawdown has decreased from -46.5% (2/20-6/21) to -10.11% (5/23-9/23).
 

Diversification does not assure profit, nor does it protect against loss. Investing in managed futures is not suitable for all investors given the level of risk involved, including the risk of loss.
