The Cypress Classic Program returned +1.74% in May and is managing over $10, 000,000.  The program utilizes a discretionary technical/fundamental trading strategy developed by Mr. Brooks Brown. The strategy incorporates classical technical analysis with various indicators and chart types to seek out high risk/reward opportunities while employing strict risk management parameters. Mr. Brown incorporates a degree of fundamental thinking into his discretionary strategy as well. The objective is to trade the momentum of the small to medium term trends found within the longer-term trends.. Mr. Brown focuses on the agriculture, meat, softs, and metals markets.

Ronald Lafferty’s One Tree Portfolio returned -0.54% in May and is positive 1.33% for 2009.  It is a combination of three systematic trading strategies, each viewing the S&P 500 in a different way and with a different time horizon. By combining the three systems, he trades around a medium-term bias using two short-term strategies. The aim is to consistently deliver equity returns that are superior to the S&P 500 index with reduced volatility. System weightings in the One Tree Portfolio can be adjusted to match the individual investor's comfort.
