What is Long Short?

What does the above have to do with the new Long Short strategy? Long Short is an aggressive strategy aiming to capture alpha, or return, by trading ETH. Remaining calm through the market upticks and downturns will be essential in achieving success and not selling at a loss.

ETH, or Ether, has strong directional moves on both the long and short side, and Long Short is able to capture them with a target return of 40% to 50% per year in USDT. The strategy utilizes Futures on Binance and detects markers to formulate trade decisions.

Long Short serves as the 3rd strategy in the Stoic AI lineup following in Long-only and Fixed Income’s footsteps. Long Short leverages the high momentum and volatility of Ethereum to identify entry and exit points for daily long and short trades.

In layman’s terms, Long Short is a game-changing, automatic trading strategy that will knock the socks off any investor’s feet.

What are the risks involved?

Like with all trading, there are risks associated with this strategy as past performance is no guarantee of future results. We cannot fully eliminate unprecedented events in the crypto market, though we actively manage these.

There are also liquidity risks, as the strategy trades actively and can incur larger than expected slippage in extremely volatile situations. Since Long Short is momentum based, there is a potential risk if the market unexpectedly moves sideways with little to no movement.

During market downturns, Long Short’s trading engine detects the bearish trend and starts short-selling ETH. To minimize the risk, we use stop losses to determine entry points.

What are the fees and the initial minimum investment?

A 5% management fee is charged on the initial $1000 minimum investment. The minimum investment can be larger but not smaller. Any additional deposits made at a later date would then be open to a 5% charge.

Where is Long Short supported?
