One of the best-performing asset classes the past six months, while commodities have taken flight and interest rates have shot up… has been trend following heavy managed futures programs.
How do they work? How do you access them? We can help start your journey with our newly released Trend Following Guide. We developed this white paper to provide impactful insight for those interested in new trends and looking for additional resources to help add trend following to their portfolios.
Trend following is the process of recognizing and trading along with an up or down “trend” in market prices. Throughout this guide, you will find techniques and tips that will help you build a strategy. We’ve included educational direction and essential models that show how you can succeed. Let’s take a look at some of those highlighted areas that we provide in-depth descriptions:
– Breakout and relative price models
– Short, medium and long term trends
– Inflation hedge and a crisis period performer
– Understanding the true diversifier
– Anti-Fragile, Liquid, Transparent, & Time Tested
If you’re already familiar with these elements mentioned above, there is still plenty of valuable information for you. We provide top trend following programs you should watch, like Quest Advisors, EMC Capital Advisors, Auspice, and more. We even take it one step further and provide overviews of their managers and companies. Plus, there’s a world of information a few clicks away in our blog, podcast library, and reading list section.
And, if you’re not a QEP investor or not looking to commit to large minimums ($1mm-$3mm), don’t worry, you’re not out of the trend following space! We also provide recommendations on options available for you.
For many, trend following can be an ideal investment strategy to take advantage of rises in commodity prices and interest rates. To learn more about specific trend facts and access professional opportunities, be sure to download this guide and contact an RCM representative to review all the available options with you.
Now, that just leaves us with one question: When will you add trend following to your portfolio?
