Program Info

The Hoss Agricultural Futures Trading Program ("Program") primarily involves that speculative trading of futures contracts on meat and grain products, and options on such futures contracts. The Program's objective is to generate significant profits, with overall volatility that is lower than the volatility of the markets in which Hoss Capital Management trades. There is no assurance the Program will achieve its objective, or that clients will avoid substantial losses.

The discretionary Program relies on a combination of fundamental and technical analysis (using moving averages and seasonal trends to support such analysis) as well as the trading experience of Hoss Capital Management's sole principal Mark Vankeirsbilck.
