ArchSight Capital - Prometheus Trading Program
Trading Strategy: Absolute Return / Managed Futures / Medium Term Options
Program Description: The Prometheus Trading Program ("Prometheus") is the flagship trading program of ArchSight Capital, designed to provide high returns while taking on a reasonable (low to moderate) level of volatility. Prometheus uses technical and fundamental analysis for each of its traded products to develop a market forecast. Prometheus uses proprietary risk management procedures to constantly make refinements to the initial positions based on the price movements (or lack thereof) of each product until the liquidation or expiration of the positions. The goal of this investment strategy is to produce consistent monthly returns that are uncorrelated with the stock, bond, and commodity markets. As such, the three metrics of success for the Prometheus Trading Program are 1) high returns, 2) low to moderate volatility, and 3) low to moderate correlations. Investment carries a risk of loss and is not suitable for all investors. There are no guarantees that the target returns, volatility levels, and correlations will be met.
Notes: CAGR is the Compound Annual Growth Rate, which assumes continuous investment since inception (October 16, 2015). Max Drawdown ("Max DD") is the worst peak-to-valley % loss over the defined period.
Performance is based on Client accounts, net of 1% management fee and 20% incentive fee. Results through 2019 Q1 were compiled by a qualified independent firm: Compliance Supervisors International, Inc. Results after 2019 Q1 follow a similar calculation methodology, but may be subject to revision once it is independently compiled. ArchSight has managed Prometheus Client accounts since October 2015 under an exemption from registering as a CTA pursuant to CFTC regulations. ArchSight became registered with the CFTC as a CTA in March 2018 and became a Member of the NFA in April 2018.
