Winton Capital: Top Trend Trader
Winton's investment technique consists of trading a portfolio of around 60 contracts on major commodity exchanges and forward markets worldwide, employing a totally computerized, technical, and broadly trend-following trading system developed by its principals. This system tracks the daily price movements from these markets around the world, and carries out certain computations to determine each day how long or short the portfolio should be to maximize profit within a certain range of risk. If rising prices are anticipated, a long position will be established; a short position will be established if prices are expected to fall.
Winton Capital principals include: David Winton Harding, Osman Murgian, Martin John Hunt and Brian Draper.
