Walker Capital aims to achieve a net return in excess of 20% per annum on invested capital using proprietary managed currency strategies designed to perform well through market volatility. There can be no assurances the MDA will achieve its investment objective. (Please note that past performance is not a reliable indicator for future performance. Markets are volatile and investors should exercise due care.)
The MDA Manager will use various tools to analyse the market, including but not limited to:
- Short-term market flow;
- Market momentum and general trend;
- Technical analysis; and
- Fundamental analysis of the economic outlook.
Entry signals are generated from technical analysis (chart patterns) and trade size is based on market volatility. The objective is to capture movements in the market trading specific currencies to target a managed range of volatility, using leverage. Stop losses will be placed on each trade as required.
The Swing Strategy is designed to generate consistent returns with lower volatility in the long term. Being an assertive strategy, the Swing Strategy holds a heavy weighting on currency and may underperform in some months.
There is no guarantee that every trade will be profitable and this strategy can include high volumes of trading, the commission and transaction costs associated with such trading may be high.
The strategy has exposure to currency and can profit from rising and falling markets.
Risk Management process
Market positions are constantly monitored and manually adjusted, where necessary, to protect capital. We may adjust exposure levels, hedge, or exit positions.
The main ways we target risk are:
- Constantly monitor market positions, making manual adjustment where necessary;
- Target a managed range of volatility to prevent trading on certain strategies during periods that exceed model parameters;
- Diversified trading systems;
- Stop losses to manage downside risk; and
- Quantitative system testing.
Open positions are managed with limit orders to define an exit price or will be monitored to allow any potential trends to develop with no specific exit price identified.
The Swing Strategy is designed for investors that are looking to invest medium term and see their returns build steadily.
The Swing Strategy is acceptable for assertive and aggressive investors, targeting income and higher returns underpinned by managed risk.
Non-limited recourse products and facilities
This strategy invests in non-limited recourse products.
