Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results. O UR I NVESTMENT S TRATEGY Our strategy focuses on agricultural commodity spreads primarily in the livestock and corn futures contracts. Companys proprietary historical analysis and indicators are used to determine when spreads are pushed far past their historical average. Trades are then taken that the traders believe have the highest probability for success. PCM maintains records of spread and price data dating back decades to evaluate spread strategies from a historical perspective. The livestock sector is very seasonal, and we believe the spreads between months will continue to be predictable. Once we believe certain spreads are pushed past their seasonable averages, we implement trades that line up with the money flow of long only funds. Grain trades are evaluated from the eyes of the producer, and attempt to take advantage of our expertise and knowledge of costs and returns to production and storage.

Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results. P ROGRAM M ARKETING H IGHLIGHTS Advisor background – 3 traders for the price of one. 2 are members of the CME and 1 is a farmer in eastern Colorado. Ag clients in particular will relate well to this story. Retail friendly CTA – The program minimum is only $20,000. One of the lowest price points for a program with this successful track record and a commitment not to raise their minimums. Trading that customers and clearing firms love – The program trades spreads in the livestock and grain markets. The program normally has a margin/equity ratio of 15% or less. The program isnt an option selling program or other scary program that is typical of this price point. The program strategy is unique – The program will have very little if any correlation with other managed futures programs or the stock market. This makes is a great addition to a managed futures portfolio. Diversification within the managed futures space.

Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results. P ROGRAM B ROKER H IGHLIGHTS Program has a 3,000 r/t per million annual trading volume. The maximum commission rate is $25 per r/t. Notional Funding Power: For customers with appropriate risk tolerance, this program is a natural for notional funding because of its low margin/equity ratio and low historic drawdowns. Turn smaller accounts into larger ones with leverage up to 2X accepted. This means a $10,000 minimum account traded as $20,000 is possible, one of the lowest in the managed futures space especially for a CTA program of this quality. Program offers a 4.5% commission to equity ratio on fully funded accounts and 9% payout on 2X notional accounts!
