UVER Performance


Univariate Entry/Re-Entry System (U.V.E.R.). Based on a model for analyzing equity markets which accounts for price, market breadth, volume and volatility, as well as treasury spreads and interest rates, Roe Capital’s UVER System distills these data points into a direction signal to which discretionary overlay is applied in order to take a medium term trend following position in equity index futures. The system typically takes positions in E-mini NASDQ futures, but can take positions in E-mini S&P and VIX futures contracts.

Using a proprietary method of quantitative analysis, the model produces a directional signal to which a discretionary overlay is applied in order to take a medium term trend following position in equity index futures. The goal of the discretionary overlay is to maximize return while minimizing exposure, seeking exposures to equity prices on 50% of trading days with a beta of 50%. Positions may be taken in the E-mini Nasdaq, E-mini S&P 500 or the VIX futures and may be held only intraday, but typically for 2 to 3 weeks. Options on futures in these markets may be traded on occasion with the goal of mitigating risk or enhancing return. US Treasury bills may be purchased with unencumbered cash in order to generate interest income. Positions are sized according to the strength of the signal and adjusted for market volatility.
