Strategy Description

The Commodity Long/Short strategy is a systematic program that uses dislocations in the relationship between cash and futures commodity prices to take directional positions in the futures market. The strategy’s general philosophy is that cash prices distill all available fundamental information and thus better represent the accurate market price of a commodity.
