Managed futures trading accounts may be appropriate for any portfolio containing stocks, bonds, cash and real estate. Managed futures trading accounts are non-correlated to traditional investments and this non-correlation allows for true diversification.
Managed futures as an alternative investment asset class have shown healthy performance numbers in bull and bear markets because it helps diversify an investment portfolio. This increased performance has been attributed to the fact that managed futures accounts show a low or even negative correlation to traditional investments such as stocks, bonds and real estate. Diversification is considered by most investment professionals as a crucial component to any investment portfolio.
