While trading risk is not eliminated – an exempt commodity pool is an excellent vehicle in which to conduct trading activity with limited funds. The Exempt Pool Operator/Trader, as well as the investor, can benefit from participation in an exempt commodity pool.

For the investor and the Pool manager the primary benefits of an Exempt Commodity Pool relate to fundamental money/risk management.

The typical investor /trader enters the futures markets with minimal funds $5,000 – $15,000. A typical move in many markets can be as much as $1,500 or more in a single day. This equates to a 10% to 50% drawdown potential (depending on account size) on just one trade. This drawdown and risk exposure can be devastating to the novice investor/trader as well as the more experienced trader.

Research shows that Professional CTAs managing millions in public and institutional funds prefer to reduce their risk per trade to as little as 1% to 3% or less of total equity . With the risk exposure per trade as high potentially as 10% to 50% on smaller account sizes, the odds are immediately stacked against the small commodity trader. This is why so many people lose in the markets, even with a sound trading system. Most experts agree that risk management is the number 1 priority in achieving superior trading performance.

By putting those same investor/trading funds into a $400,000 Exempt Commodity Pool, the depth of capital is much greater. More non-correlated trades can be entered into simultaneously. The investor not only benefits from average per trade risk reduction on a per dollar invested basis (as a percentage of total assets), but this reduction is further enhanced by the ability to diversify significantly into different markets and/or different strategies, ultimately smoothing total portfolio volatility . The list is long of traders who have had to walk away from potential success because of a lack of adequate capital to effectively trade a promising strategy.

Last but not least is the fact that the investor is alimited partnerand his/her liability is limited to the amount invested into the pool by he or she. We will show you how to structure your pool to attract more investors as well as how to receive IRA Funds into your pool.

The broker, as an exempt pool operator and general partner, has the ability to maintain an account with greater depth of capital, staying power, and chance for success. The broker becomes more involved with the performance (as measured against other benchmark indices) and as a result adapts a deeper sense of accountability and responsibility. The broker not only benefits as an exempt pool operator for the reasons stated above, but also benefits (for these same reasons) from individual clients operatingtheir ownexempt pool vs. a smaller individual trading account which is less likely to succeed.

We at Miramar Research firmly believe that an Exempt Commodity Pool is good for the investor, good for the trader, good for the clearing firm (fewer margin calls), and last but not least, good for the industry !
