The FTB1 trading strategy is a blend of a diverse group of strategies which aim to provide superior risk adjusted returns using multiple markets and trading methods.  Within this blend are the ACV, RVS, SSJ and SSK strategies sized to minimize account drawdowns while preserving excellent returns.  Strategies provide market neutral income whil respecting the underlying momentum, market neutral income while providing defined risk control. The strategies use options on Crude Oil futures (CL), Gold Futures (GC),  S&P 500 (SPX), Russell 2000 (RUT) and the S&P 500 VIX S/T Futures ETN (symbol VXX), Gold ETF (GLD), and Long Term Treasury Bonds (TLT).

How The Strategy Works

  • Defined risk on every trade. There are no naked options, no short futures, or any other form of unlimited risk type of trades.
  • Momentum priority. The dominant trend and momentum of the market is always respected so that we can benefit from long lasting trends and avoid being on the wrong side of market crashes.
  • Income over home runs. We opt to see income from positive Theta rather than catching giant returns from long premium. This allows for far more consistent returns while giving up only a small amount of long term upside.
