Program Info

Kingview Management's Short Term Opportunity Program (STO) is a systematic, black box trading program. The strategy attempts to capture the volatility in the S&P 500 futures market. The strategy was rst developed 25 years ago by Philip Schuck and Charles Lewis, but it has continued to evolve as they make adjustments to factor in current market conditions. The program focuses on statistically based quantitative analysis rather than a qualitative analysis.
Risk Management is the main priority of this system. Trades are placed on a daily basis and are never held overnight. Pre-dened loss limits are established prior to entering trades. Stop loss orders, which are intended to limit losses to certain amounts, may not be effective because market conditions may make it impossible to execute such orders.
