ACMP II Monthly Gross Returns
(before the deduction of Performance Fees)


ACMP II is now a multi-year proven strategy utilising a combination of calibrated and encoded algorithms of Technical Analytical studies, using Cross Currency Correlation, trade sizing and extremely detailed money & margin management methodologies. The trading method has no initial bias to market direction and uses a comprehensive structure of proprietary algorithms that use current market momentum, and a mix of diverse high probability technical analysis indications for entry and exits into the forex markets. The management of each trade includes the use of Current Market Price Action, Strategic Correlated Spot Positions, Predictive Cycle Analysis and Statistical Positioning based on Quantitative Models, combined with market intelligence and Superior risk-management performance.

This approach allows for predictive adaptation to ever changing market conditions and continually allows for exceptional returns while keeping risk and account equity at minimum boundaries. No matter what the current or forthcoming market conditions throw our way, our trading systems are designed to adapt on the fly and capitalise on the changes.


Our Managed Account Strategy is anchored by an investment philosophy emphasising portfolio construction with an asymmetric return profile and definable downside risk to capital invested.

The Trading Team invests in spot, forwards, non-deliverable forwards, and option (vanilla and exotic) positions consistent with the investment philosophy.


ACMP II is designed to be a truly defence first trading strategy, incorporating over 40 years of combined experience in our trading approach.  Our team has lived through MULTIPLE market cycles and black swan events and we realise algo trading cannot only be about mathematics, but also about preparation for the unknowns, systematically. 

ACMP II's underlying algos have been designed with “table driven” architecture allowing for the changes in inputs based on any macro level market changes, allowing us to stay relevant over several years, and well into the future.
