Statera MR Program


Statera MR Program.  The Statera MR Program is a short-term systematic mean reversion position and momentum day trading program which trades the Emini-S&P 500 futures contract.  The program’s trading edge is derived from exploiting the financialization of equity markets, taking advantage of the market structure and long bias which has arisen from the widely traded equity index.  Trading launched January 1, 2018, so real time performance will be available shortly.

The program is divided into two components: a day trade and overnight component, each containing several systematic trading models.  The position or overnight component consists of a mean reversion and pattern recognition strategy.  The mean reversion strategy seeks to profit from short term overbought or oversold conditions which occur against the dominant trend.  This model is long biased, with net short positions only possible in structural bear markets. There are two pattern recognition trades in the overnight component of the program which look for buying opportunities in cyclical market patterns, such as monthly option and quarterly equity futures expiration.  Overnight positions are typically held one to three days.

The day trade component is also heavily long-biased, though net short positions are taken in bull market conditions as well as bear markets. The main day trading model is a momentum model, which analyzes advancing and declining shares to arrive at a directional signal for the day.  In addition, the system employs a short term trend and momentum reversal algorithm to account for failures of the market to follow through with momentum.


Positions are sized to volatility, with larger positions taken in lower volatility markets and smaller positions in higher volatility markets.  A variety of range based stops are employed at the system level for each system to protect against large losses for any given trade in the model, as well as an overall portfolio stop employed at the model level.  For each $100,000 trading unit, a maximum of 3 contracts can be held overnight.  While the program is traded systematically, we apply a discretionary overlay to account for risk factors which are not contemplated by the trading models, such as event risk.
