Some futures markets, such as Crude Oil futures and Cocoa futures continue to trend. Other futures markets such as S&P 500 futures and Pork Belly futures moved adversely against our diversified portfolio. Overall, we view these movements as market corrections to be expected in our long-term trend-following strategy.
Springville, UT (PRWEB) May 23, 2008
Vision Capital Management (http://www.forwardthinking.vc), a Commodity Trading Advisor (CTA) and emerging manager trading commodity futures, posted a loss of 2.17% for its CTA program and a minor gain in its Commodity Pool (hedge fund) for the month of April 2008. Additional details, including required risk disclosures, can be found at Vision Capital Management's website at http://www.forwardthinking.vc. Accredited investors must register for a login to access the Commodity Pool (hedge fund) information.
In April, Vision Capital Management was active in 44 commodity futures markets in April 2008, the most active of which was Crude Oil futures and Euro Dollar futures. Many commodity futures and financial futures markets were consolidating after several months of volatile price action. For this reason, most of Vision Capital Management's portfolio's activities were relatively flat. However, based on current positioning in commodity futures markets like crude oil futures, Vision Capital Management may be able to capitalize on a resumption of trends, which may bode well for its trend-following approach.
Dario Michalek, CEO and portfolio manager of Vision Capital Management (http://www.forwardthinking.vc), described his outlook on many commodity futures markets: "Some futures markets, such as Crude Oil futures and Cocoa futures continue to trend. Other futures markets such as S&P 500 futures and Pork Belly futures moved adversely against our diversified portfolio. Overall, we view these movements as market corrections to be expected in our long-term trend-following strategy."
