What are Managed Futures?
Managed Futures refer to professionally managed accounts, traded by registered Commodity Trading Advisors (CTA’s). CTA’s can go long or short, in a wide range of instruments including grains, meats, metals, interest rates, currencies, energies, and stock indices. They trade a broad range of strategies in varying time frames and offer diversification and opportunity for enhanced returns.
Managed futures traders are typically looking to capitalize on market trends that persist from supply/demand imbalances in the marketplace. With the ability to go both long and short, managed futures have the potential to profit in any economic
environment, and often perform best in crisis periods or uncertainty.
