Slow Trader Hedge Fund

‘Slow Trader’ allows investors the opportunity to access an intraday traded (hedge) fund, held in trust.

Why an opportunity, and why intraday trading is not possible for most people:

  • Firstly, such traded funds are not readily available. Moreover, expert (and hopefully successful) short-term traders charge a lot – up to 50% of profits and substantial participation fees.
  • Secondly,  this form of trading is a difficult skill to master. It takes several years for a trader to graduate from the ‘beginner’ level, through ‘intermediate’, to ‘expert’. And, ‘expert’ is where we find all the capitalised reward. In other words, short-term trading, in contradiction to its name, takes a long time to learn.
  • Finally, learning the intraday and day trading skills is often, through the beginner and intermediate stages, financially penalising.

From the 1-hour chart the fund trades:

  1. Currency pairings GBP/USD, EUR/USD, and AUD/USD – long and short.
  2. Commodity Gold – long and short.
  3. ETF US 500 SPTRD – long and short.

For each of these, we look for an edge: the principal trading advantages that we use are probability, context and price action.

The 1-hour chart is used in preference as this provides several trading opportunities per day; this means that trades can be open for several hours, overnight but never over a weekend.

My page ‘Day trading made easy for you’ is written with the 5-minute chart in mind but applies equally to the 1-hour chart and is the essence of how we approach probability, context and price action.

(For those interested in the longer-term opportunity, Nick’s qualifying UK shares are published quarterly through this blog and guidance on the COT will also be given as the COT occasion provides – the COT cycle for each commodity coming round independently a few times a year).

I provide a detailed annual report on the fund and a semi-annual ‘how goes it’ review.

The goals of the fund are:

  1. Not to lose money
  2. Increase the fund by 15% to 30% year on year
  3. Compound the fund year on year
