Innovative Approach To Markets
TitansFX created the Athena trading strategy to selectively trade major currency pairs on an intraday basis. We believe markets that focus on buy and hold strategies mask both competence and incompetence making it difficult for investors to accurately judge the quality of both their financial managers and investments. We crystallize our returns on a monthly basis. We make every trade in our own account and are largely compensated on our monthly performance.
We define winning as generating positive monthly returns and argue that our intraday strategy provides accountability that most practitioners blur by telling investors to focus on the long term. We believe the standard mantra of "invest for the long term" to some obscure point in the future makes it difficult for investors to accurately judge the competency of the people managing their money.
We argue that consistency is the most important financial measurement. Any trader/investor can have a lucky month/quarter/year but the sign of true greatness is measured in the day to day, month to month and year to year results. The same is true in sports, investments, and trading. We practice sound trading strategies that we developed based on mathematical statistics we believe are repeatable into the future.
We eat what we kill. We are compensated on our results. Our performance fee is based on profits we generated each month. We employ a monthly high water mark and trade our own account proportionally alongside our clients.
TitansFX is fully transparent with clients giving us trading permission to their own account through a Limited Power of Attorney. No lock up period and our clients have full access to their money at any time. We are regulated in the U.S. with the National Futures Association (NFA)
NFA ID 0513221
We believe that crystillizing returns on a monthly basis accurately portrays trading competency and is a more practical approach to the markets. Through our intraday trading approach, we attempt to mitigate risk that usually arises from long term market exposure.
