The Intalcon systematic strategy is applied to trade a global portfolio of 10 highly liquid equity index futures on a long-only basis. The model combines trend and counter trend logics with an average trade duration of around two weeks. A close correlation to the MSCI World DM is ensured by assigning geographical index-reflective weights to all traded contracts and holding cash in a currency basket.
The strategy uses only price-limit orders and requires the ability to timely place them on the trading platform. The benchmark is set at 50% of the full index to provide for a comfortable low-volatility environment but leverage can, of course, be changed upwards or downwards to fit any desired risk-level.
The strategy‘s net performance measures (trading futures) are calculated versus the benchmark’s net-return (including dividends).
The goal is to, on average, beat the benchmark returns by more than 25% whilst maintaining the same index-risk profile.
