Company Info

Mr. Ross is the owner of White Indian Trading Company. The trading approach draws upon Mr. Ross' judgment, experience and his knowledge of the

technical factors affecting various commodity markets and attempts to identify optimal trading opportunities. The approach is primarily guided by

trading systems. Even though some of his systems are trend following, currently the main system traded - "STAIRS" is an intermediate counter trend

system. The trading systems which are used and which guide the trading decisions were developed by Robb through intense research designed to

uncover trading opportunities. Primarily, this research focused on events in the marketplace which are often precursors to the development of the

intermediate counter trends. The trading approach relies heavily on the disciplined management of risk. In evaluating the various factors which

make up a trading decision, the systems pay close attention to each trade's risk-reward potential, how it fits into the risk profile of the entire

portfolio, and whether it adheres to the account's overall trading goals.
