All Returns Outlined Below Are Net of The Performance Fee
Nordic Prosper is a technology and AI-based trading strategy.
The trading team uses cutting-edge technology that looks for breakouts in standard trading patterns and then trades the retracement pattern. With data continuously collected minute by minute since 2008, the AI machine learning algorithm evaluates over 37,000 different data points in real time. The trading team has analysed that over 90% of the time the breakout reverts to the period prior to the breakout. Once this has occurred, the system which is operational 24/5 places trades.
The system is constantly responding to market movements and will take long and short positions simultaneously in the 3 currency pairs we trade, EUR/USD, USD/JPY and NZD/USD to maximise returns whilst also reducing risk.
Nordic Sky is a discretionary strategy based on price action. To that end the trader enters only high probability setups at important zones on the charts that sometimes take days to develop.
The strategy is based on capital preservation while at the same time increasing the invested funds by executing quality trades. All investors have more funds in their account at this moment in time than what they have invested.
The team trades a wide range of currency pairs, based on a discretionary global macro approach. They focus on the major G-20 currencies in our global macro approach and use a minimum target of 1:2 risk/reward (risk 1 to make 2). Their global macro strategy is active across all time zones, market intelligence and insight being gained from a wide global network.
The influencing factors include fundamentals such as rates and policy, technical analysis, in particular Fibonacci levels and mean reversion analysis, weight of market and sentiment, e.g., CFTC commitment of traders report, and of course the human side of the business by just talking to the contacts to remain contemporary and discussing ideas and influential events.
The team trades major currencies and their main differentiators include:
- non-traditional currency pairings such as GBPAUD or NZDJPY, EURCAD – staying in the major currency bracket with plenty of liquidity but making the most of overextended or undervalued crosses as applicable
- intentional avoidance of algorithmic trading
- discretionary use of hard stop losses in line with risk/reward goals
- gaining time-zone specific advantages and understanding pricing nuances by talking to contacts in different geographic centers
- choosing whether to participate in higher volatility conditions (another reason we avoid algos)
- positive returns with minimal use of leverage and any drawdown is consistent with a positive risk/reward ratio, i.e. returning more in up months than they risk in down months
Nordic Alfa utilises a discretionary holistic view on the markets. This strategy identifies technical set-ups on a variety of time-frames across all major currency pairs and commodities. The strategy was tested in a live three-month competition in 2016 and 2018 where it was ranked 2nd place and 1st place respectively on a ROI basis.
Nordic Alfa stands out due to its ability to detect a key trend change at its early stages, therefore providing the opportunity to maximize profits with a fixed risk factor. Furthermore, the risk-management component of the strategy excels in riding the subsequent new trend and capturing 4-7% moves.
It is important to note that the trading team does rely completely on technical factors when determining trades of interest, they will use other factors such as market sentiment and fundamental analysis when determining the risk allocation for each trade idea.
The leader of the trading team has a background in corporate banking and has been developing trading strategies for the last 10 years.
The strategy is based on a EUR/USD mean reversion algorithm that utilises proprietary volatility-weighted technical indicators to mitigate risk from breakouts. Trading risk management logic is also coupled with the trade signal generation to help reduce the risk of market condition regime changes. The strategy has nearly 3 years of extensive out of sample testing and a track record of real account performance to ensure strategies are not overfitted. Order flow is benign to liquidity providers or brokers, meaning that it is mutually beneficial for counterparties, therefore ensuring it is sustainable.
The program seeks absolute returns by swing-trading among the major FX pairs, primarily: EUR/USD, AUD/USD, NZD/USD, EUR/GBP, USD/CHF, CAD/JPY and USD/JPY.
Average holding time for trades will range from several hours to a week or two. Trades are determined via technical analysis.
On any give trade, we will risk a maximum of 2% of a client’s account balance per trade, i.e. $25,000 account will have a max risk of $500 per trade.
