Program Info

This program attempts to take advantage of short-term inefficiencies in the stock index futures markets by using multiple independent intra-day and swing trading models. Trades are generated with proprietary computer generated signals. The average holding period for the swing trading models is five trading days, but can be as short as one day and as long as twenty days. The intra-day strategies are primarily trend following in nature and utilize market volatility. The swing trading strategies are primarily counter-trend in nature, with some incorporating fundamental data as well. This combination of time frames and model types is designed with the intention of providing consistent returns during any market environment.

Company Info

Camkay Capital Management LLC provides managed account programs for the futures markets. Our intention is to provide investors with consistent outsized returns while keeping losses and drawdowns contained. To fulfill this intention we primarily use very short term trading strategies that put a small percentage of capital at risk and are in the market only when perceived opportunity is the greatest.
