Red Oak’s trading strategy is grounded in fundamental analysis. Specifically it stems from
Gary Gerstein’s knowledge and experience in financial,currency, and commodity markets and the many fundamental factors affecting them. Red Oak’s approach is neither technically based nor trend following. By contrast managers using technical analysis study the markets per se to predict future price trends. 

Fundamental analysis is based generally on the study of factors external to markets in order to predict future prices. Such factors might include among others, supply and demand for a given commodity, the economy of a particular country, government policy, domestic and foreign political and economic events, and changing trade prospects. Fundamental analysis accepts the premise that market prices often may not always reflect the underlying or true value of a commodity, although such value will eventually determine price level.

Technical analysis is based on the theory that studying markets and their patterns provides the means to predict future price trends. Technical analysis of markets may include among other things a study of actual daily, weekly, and monthly price fluctuations, volume variations, and changes in open interest.

Trading commodities and futures is more an intellectual art than a systematic science. Red Oak may use statistical analysis to monitor markets, but reliance on technical trading models runs contrary to our approach. Our trading is highly disciplined and success depends on the discretionary investment judgment of Gary Gerstein. The raw materials that produce our successful returns are skill, knowledge, timing, and instinct.

Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results. The risk of loss in trading commodities can be substantial. You should therefore carefully consider whether such trading is suitable for you in light of your financial condition.
