Diversified Commodity Program (DCP)
This strategy grows out of the
ACE Diversified Premium Collection Strategy (DPC) which is a mix of roughly half
of account assets supporting the S&P 500 Index future and half devoted to other
commodities. This strategy will place higher focus on these other commodity
Tactically, the Advisor has the discretion to trade options-on-futures or the
future itself. That will usually depend upon the specific commodity involved and
the conditions in the market. The Advisor expects the greatest concentration
will be on energy, precious metals, currencies, and U.S. treasury notes and
bonds. Trades may also come to the surface for other financials, agricultural
commodities or other futures, including stock index futures depending upon the
appraisal of the opportunity and the availability of capital in the accounts.
For this strategy, the Advisor believes the suitable prospect includes a wide
range from the “average” investor with a modest portfolio and limited risk
capital funds, to the sophisticated investor with a large portfolio but without
the available time to keep up with the trading variables among many commodities.
At least 20 months should be allowed to evaluate performance of this strategy so
as to experience a range of market conditions and its impact on account
volatility as well as market response to economic and exogenous conditions.
