Southwest Managed Investments, LLC Global Diversified Program

The Global Diversified program’s trading strategy is ultra-long term model based trend following. No fundamental analysis is utilized. The strategy is not based on analysis of supply and demand factors, general economic factors or world events. The GD system generates its own entry and exit signals and trades both sides of the market (long and short). The GD system is very long term in time-frame focus. The GD system attempts to locate potentially profitable performance characteristics across a wide range of markets. Approximately 27 domestic and international commodity interests may be traded. Six of these may either be long or short interest rate contracts reflecting interest rates in Europe, the US and Australia. All markets are traded with equal parameters. SWMI reserves the right to make adjustments in the exact entry or exit price the program uses, or to delay entry or exit on any order, in order to attempt to reduce the impact of slippage. The balance of the commodity interests followed are currencies, grains, metals, softs and energies. The program utilizes one long-term time-frame model. It should be noted that there will be times when there is significant correlation between markets within a market sector or between market sectors, possibly in an adverse direction to positions held in a client’s account. Clients of this program should be aware that this factor alone, although there are others, will lead to periods of extreme volatility and possibly very large drawdowns in an account’s equity.
