Chesapeake Capital Corporation
Chesapeake's trading methodology is long term trend following utilizing robust trading systems across a broadly diversified set of markets; put simply: Classic Trend Following. It is a systematic (i.e. rules-based) investment approach that focuses on capital preservation while attempting to provide positive annual returns. Utilizing diversification and robust systems, our goal is to maximize the profit in each trade by following the system entries and exits regardless of market conditions or temptations.
We believe using robust trend following systems with minimal filters, conditions or other parameters minimizes the risk of curve fitting and positions us well for market conditions that may not have occurred in the past. We invest in over 100 markets worldwide, including currencies, commodities, interest rates and stock indices. Our portfolio strategy is designed to approximately target a fifty-fifty exposure split between the commodity and the financial markets. As well, the maximum risk is limited at the market level, the sector level and the portfolio level. We believe there is a major distinction between the volatility of investment returns and the risk of losing capital. We are consistent, focused and single-minded in our approach and believe our long term trading systems to be the most consistent and reliable at making positive returns frequently.
