Weekly E-mini Program - Customers' Accounts

Investment Strategy

WEP focuses on short duration derivatives - the option expires within 2-8 days, because the time decay is the greatest in those final days. It does this primarily by identifying the option strikes with best risk/reward ratio. WEP uses historical value analysis to assess the attractiveness of any trading opportunities. BGA focuses on top down and macro themes. We employ volatilities matrix and short term market indicators to determine trade entry, exit and weights. Our strategy uses a combination of fundamental (30%) and technical inputs (70%).
