Opportunistic Trades:

Driven by the trading team’s focus on scouring the market for opportunities based on external drivers (data releases, announcements, technical analyses). Tying into the shorter-term nature of this approach, trading exposure is likely to have a tenure of minutes through to hours. Once a profit buffer has been established, the trading approach will switch towards the strategic trades.

Strategic Trades: 

Capitalising on macroeconomic setups, strategic trades taken will be during trending or volatile market conditions. Strategic trades are longer term in nature and could span over a couple of days and are easily liquidated. Such trades are important as they have the ability to significantly enhance the fund’s performance when deployed within a risk-controlled environment.
