Commodity Trading Advisors and Managed Futures Accounts

Commodity Trading Advisors and Managed Futures Accounts

Whether it is a king of a dynasty, sultan of the land, or the president of a nation; all rulers throughout time have used advisors. A single individual or a close knit group that counsels major decisions, gives outside perspective, and provides intellectual guidance all while having the other’s interest as the up-most priority. With all the risk, volatile fluctuation, and uncertainty in the market—especially in commodities where risk is inevitable — having an advisor is a good option to consider.

A managed futures account is one in which a professional money manager called a Commodity Trading Advisor (CTA) seeks to generate returns by trading futures contracts on commodities. CTAs are regulated by the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) and the National Futures Association (NFA) and are required to provide in depth disclosure documents (unless exempt by CTFC 4.7) and submit to an FBI background check.

Benefits of having a CTA:

  • A professional track record of all your trades and profit and loss on a monthly basis
  • A set strategy in which markets have already been chosen and exiting and entering markets are calculated by the CTA
  • In order for CTAs to earn an incentive fee, they will need to show fresh profits in the account (new equity highs). Most CTAs do charge management fee on monthly or quarterly basis.
  • CTAs are all registered with the NFA and/or CFTC and are professionals who are trading your account

We get approached by Commodity Trading Advisors (CTAs) and they provide us with trading systems they use with their clients. We screen out many CTAs we like and introduce their programs to our clients.

If you have a CTA you are working with we would be more than happy to execute and evaluate their systems or strategies even if they are not ones we already work with. The benefits of executing the CTA's program you are working with through us, is that we have experience in evaluating CTA programs at Cannon Trading. We have seasoned brokers with over 20 years of experience in the commodities and future markets including ex floor traders and a CTA who are all brokers here at Cannon Trading Company.
