McMillan Asset Management Announces New CTA Product

By Lawrence G. McMillan

McMillan Analysis Corp., dba McMillan Asset Management, is proud to announce the launch of its newest product. 

The Volatility Capture CTA strategy is a variation of Volatility Capture that uses VIX futures on a tactical basis to hedge, instead of purchasing VIX options on a continual basis. This pure futures version has a slightly different profit graph and has the potential for better returns in most cases due to the lack of drag from the purchase of VIX options.

We have been trading this variation at RJO'Brien since May of 2018. Since then, it has outperformed the Interactive Brokers VIX-options approach (Volatility Capture Futures). Moreover, the back-tested results prior to May 2018 were superior as well, although it did under-perform in certain extremely bearish months such as February 2018.

Trading or investing whether on margin or otherwise carries a high level of risk, and may not be suitable for all persons. Leverage can work against you as well as for you. Before deciding to trade or invest you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience, and ability to tolerate risk. The possibility exists that you could sustain a loss of some or all of your initial investment or even more than your initial investment and therefore you should not invest money that you cannot afford to lose. You should be aware of all the risks associated with trading and investing, and seek advice from an independent financial advisor if you have any doubts. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results.
