Program Info

The Kingsview Management Multi-Market Program combines a sophisticated limited risk option strategy with Philip Silverman experience trading for hedge funds.
The program attempts to generate a return on investment for its clients by employing a mostly market neutral trading strategy. The strategy consists of buying and selling combinations of options on futures contracts in various markets including index futures markets, metals, interest rates, foods, softs and energies. The traders simultaneously buy and sell out-of-the-money put and call options to collect premium, a strategy commonly known as selling credit spreads. The risks associated with this strategy are both limited and quantifiable.
