To “go short” means speculating in falling prices.
The model is based on pattern recognition, the manager takes position on his discretion and therefore the model can not be back tested.
The Short Only-program can be seen as a hedge against falling market or just as an individual program.
The result might have good times when the equity markets are falling and therefore there can exist a reverse correlation to major stock indices.
The result is solely dependent on the fund managers ability to pick profitable trades.
Minimum account size in Short Only is $10 000.
