If there is one thing that I have learned after speaking to a number of people regarding their goals for trading in the commodity futures markets, it is that there is no specific service that is right for everybody. Depending on a trader or investor’s time, commitment and risk capital, there can be one service or many that fit his or her needs. Daniels Trading (DT) is committed to matching assets with opportunities, and understands that each individual is different in regards to the time, money, and commitment they are willing and/or able to spend trading or investing in these markets.
The first thing to consider when deciding which Daniels Trading service is right for you is to consider whether you are looking for a hands-on or hands-off investment approach to the futures markets. For those looking for a permanent pass from the emotions involved in trading, you may want to look into one of our many hands-off investment approaches to the markets. With a hands-off investment approach to the futures markets, you can still do your due diligence of checking your statements and remaining up to date on the status of your account, while relieving yourself of emotions and managing your account. In addition to the benefit of relieving yourself from the emotions of trading, you can defer the execution and monitoring of your account to a DT broker that you trust and feel comfortable with.
DT’s brokers are extremely dedicated to their craft, and as such they are capable of servicing their clients’ needs through a variety of different approaches. The three most common hands-off investment services that DT offers its clients are: Managed Futures, Automated Strategy Execution, and Futures Trading Advice Signal Execution. Each of these services offers different opportunities to investor’s depending on the investor’s risk capital, risk tolerance, and interests in the commodity markets.
DT offers a hands-off investment approach called Managed Futures wherein a registered CTA trades your capital based on a specific trading strategy. The strategy that the CTA uses may concentrate on one market or several markets, and involve long-term trades, short-term trades, a conservative approach, an aggressive approach, or a combination of approaches. To learn more about Managed Futures as a hands-off investment approach to the commodity futures markets, Daniels Trading encourages you to schedule a Personalized Portfolio Consultation.
An alternative hands-off investment approach to Managed Futures that DT offers is Automated Strategy Execution. Automated Strategy Execution is similar to Managed Futures in that it is a completely hands-off approach to the commodity futures markets. What makes Automated Strategy Execution different from Managed Futures, however, is that it offers strategies that typically do not require as much capital and is executed via algorithmic computer systems that automatically trade based on certain changes in the markets. To view the automated strategies that Daniels Trading offers, we encourage you to request a trial to iSystems.
A third option DT offers as a hands-off investment approach to the commodity futures markets is Futures Trading Advice Signal Execution, which allows the client to follow trade recommendations that are executed through a newsletter or website that specializes in a specific trading strategy, market, or combination of the two. If the investor is comfortable enough with the website or newsletter that the trades are being executed from, Futures Trading Advice Signal Execution gives the client the option of having trades executed via Letter of Direction (LOD). LOD gives the broker the authority to execute each trade that the advice recommends. Futures Trading Advice Signal Execution also grants the client more interaction with the trading process and broker, so much so that the broker can confirm each trade recommendation with the client and work with the client to determine whether the trade recommendation is right for them.
Ultimately, there are multiple options DT clients have for investing in the commodity futures markets that free the client from the emotions and daily time commitment involved in attacking the markets individually. Each service can be tailored to the client’s needs and interests as an investor will take the client’s risk capital and risk tolerance into consideration.
