The cases of historical divergence between coffee and AIGE is illustrated.

ALPHA is a pair trading, long only - short only strategy and Numeric Ranking product based on TIME fractals. Time arbitrage, Time Triads, Time fractals are terms coined by Orpheus Research. The signals are carried over three different time frames viz. sub minor (2-3 days), minor (10-30 days) and intermediate (above 30 days). This is a daily signal product. The signals will be illustrated through tracker and running portfolios. Alpha can be used by fund managers for relative allocations, traders for leverage bets and high net worth clients for selective trades. This is a part of the time triads analytics developed by Orpheus Research.

Coverage: Forex (EUR USD, AUD USD, GBP USD, CAD USD, JPY USD, CHF USD, Yuan Rnmbi, Indian rupee, NZD USD), Energy (Crude, Natural Gas, Gasoline, Heating Oil, Petroleum, Carbon Emissions, Brent, WTM, Energy Index), Metals (Precious Metals, Tin, Zinc, Nickel, Copper, Platinum, Silver, Industrial Metals Index, Gold), Agro (Coffee, Corn, Grains, Livestock, Sugar, Wheat, Soybeans, Cotton), Thematic and Global Equity (Coal Mining Fund, Shipping Fund, Dow Industrials, Sense, Agricultural Equity, Water, Nuclear, Russell 2000, Russell 1000 USD), Bonds (US 30, US 5Y,  US 10Y, US 2Y, INR Bond Index, China Bond Index, Australian Bond Fund, Global Bond Index, Sweden Bond Index).

Performance cycles is a term coined by Orpheus Capitals. This is another name for time triads, time arbitrage, time fractals but expressed in terms of relative performance. It’s a bounded oscillator that moves in a range say from 1 to 30. 1 is top relative performance and 30 is worst performance. The idea is that performance is cyclical. A top performer will underperform in future and vice versa. A top relative performer is also the worst value pick and the top relative underperformer is the best value pick.

Time is a social construct and we see time through the life and nature around us. Understanding time can not only give a unifying theory to research of a few thousand years, but also help us understand the world we live in. Time evolves, oscillates and continues. Time comes before everything, but we don’t see it. We just feel it. We believe what we see and this is why understanding what we don’t see is a challenge. Understanding time could bring more than a conventional thought down, it’s a revolution, which could rock the very foundation of economic thought or the geometric structures Euclid laid down in 300 BC. We are at the start of the journey, but if time is indeed the real mathematics, we could see high accuracy in time forecasts.

Econohistory is the study of performance cycles between assets. Cycles are the generic name for time fractals.

Long zinc, short coffee delivers 9% (7 days)

Despite starting counterparty odds, long zinc -  short coffee was up 9% and long AIGI (industrial metals) - short gold was up 14%. This week we are doing another pair rollover. We are closing the short heating oil leg and plugging the long AIGE (Energy Index) leg with Natural Gas. The Natgas Rieki is turning against dollar and also against Brent and AIGE. Our global asset rankings are benchmarked to dollar, so as natural gas moves up to top three, we don’t want to hold it as a naked asset anymore.

Alpha Pair Tracker


The other running pairs like short carbon emissions ETF and Crude, Short Carbon Emission and AIGI (industrial metals) delivered 1.6% and 8% since 15 July respectively. Long Euro – Short dollar is up 16% and still running. GBP USD and JPY gave first signals of exhaustion against dollar.

During an internal brainstorming session, the question which emerged was “Why should be just look at extreme divergence to short the best and long the worst?” and “Why can’t we say keeps the low divergence pair running, say between wheat and grains (No. 4 and 10)?”

The whole idea of playing extreme divergence is about accepting that one can try understanding that assets have diverged more than normal and the path of least resistance is to low or neutral divergence when for example coffee and zinc reduce the gap from worst and best to somewhere mid way. Working with low divergence pairs or non extreme pairs is like guessing how a backwardation will resolve, very tough.

On a final note, our top ranking coffee was number 2 this week. Sugar assumed the top ranking spot. What a better time to talk about sugar but now. Sugar was in the news and the majority is made to believe that there is no asset better than sugar today. For us at Orpheus, Sugar should not only underperform dollar, but also more than a few global assets over the next few weeks. The latest Alpha carries the pair tracker with updated signals and global asset rankings.

The Hunt brothers – II

The historical case of silver Thursday suggests cornering of assets is a cyclical event with probable consequences.

Cornering markets may have come off age, but even today traders dare to take large bets. How safe is it? What do historical cases suggest? Are there any signatures linked with such trades? What does numeric ranking of global portfolio suggest? Time does not differentiate between assets. If coffee is the best in a quarter compared to 54 global assets and Zinc is the worst, it’s easy to make a cross asset case, where we go long Zinc and short Coffee. We initiate the pair today.

Long Agricultural Index!

The DJ-UBSCI Agricultural Index traded as an ETF (AIGA.L) at London Stock Exchange not only provides risk diversification in the coming inflationary times, but is also an integral part of Alpha Agro pairs. AIGA is the benchmark index for the agro asset coverage. This week we have a few running pairs long AIGA and short Hogs, Grains and Wheat. All of wheat, Grains and Hogs should underperform. This underperformance comes after a previous grains outperformance against AIGA from 8 April to 4 May. Grains complex outperformed AIGA marginally by 5%.  The polarity has reversed now, as outperformance turns into underperformance.

And all our readers who are still wondering what happened to Sugar, we have illustrated the Numeric Rankings for Agro assets.  On 24 March Sugar was at the bottom of rankings and now the asset has moved to the top slot delivering 10% against AIGA from 3 Jun. Sugar also delivered against Corn as the pair moved up 16% in 25 days. But despite all the sugar positivity, there are Softs like Coffee that are low in Numeric Ranking should outperform Sugar. The Numeric ranking clearly illustrates shifting performance as top rankers fall and worst rankers deliver.

Grains get ready to outperform

Did you know that grains have been underperforming agricultural index since 19 Dec 2008. Long AIGA (Agricultural Index) - Short Grains delivered 60% (45% annualized). Grains have reached performance cycle lows and suggest a reversal in polarity. After underperforming 67% since 5 Feb against AIGA, sugar is still bottoming on the performance cycle. We don’t have a reversal signal yet on the SOFT. We continue to look at a reversal on COTTON, CATL and AIGL (livestock Index) against AIGA.

Alpha.Agro - Short Sugar, Long AIGA delivers 74%

After all the story about sugar, the crisis, the lines and rush to buy sugar from anywhere as far as Belarus, guess what happened? It crashed. How did we at Orpheus see it happening? Performance cycles suggested Sugar was at the top of the Agro complex and can not sustain it’s leadership position. The short Suga.l, long AIGA.l was a working pair. The rankings are benchmarked with AIGA.L (The Agricultural Index). Sugar fell 74% agaisnt AIGA.

Time is a social construct and we see time through the life and nature around us. Understanding time can not only give a unifying theory to research of a few thousand years, but also help us understand the world we live in. Time evolves, oscillates and continues. Time comes before everything, but we don’t see it. We just feel it. We believe what we see and this is why understanding what we don’t see is a challenge. Understanding time could bring more than a conventional thought down, it’s a revolution, which could rock the very foundation of economic thought or the geometric structures Euclid laid down in 300 BC. We are at the start of the journey, but if time is indeed the real mathematics, we could see high accuracy in time forecasts.

Econohistory is the study of performance cycles between assets. Cycles are the generic name for time fractals. Performance cycles can be studied for any time frame, for as small as a tick data to multiyear time frames. This objective approach to performance cyclicality can explain why intermarket analysis is an area of study? Why bonds and commodities tend to be inversely related? What is the connection of Oil with world markets? Why the world watches DOW sometimes and sometimes a 500 point effect on DOW seems to have no impact? Why correlation between assets moves from near perfect at times to weak correlation at other times? Why the same news has different impact on a stock or market? Why equities and bond trend together and why the relationship decouples sometime? When will inflation become deflation, disinflation, stagflation or hyperinflation? When and why does gold outperform and underperform silver? Econohistory can objectively answer these questions, using performance cycles, time fractals and past data. Economic history is mathematical.

Introducing Alpha Agro - Short Sweet, Long Corn

Sweet corn is a variety of maize with a high sugar content and prepared as a vegetable. Cooked sweet corn has significant antioxidant activity, which has been suggested to reduce the chance of heart disease and cancer. A soup may also be made from the plant, called sweet corn soup.

The short sugar and long corn we are speaking about are tradable commodities as ETFs at London Stock Exchange. We are introducing ALPHA.AGRO today. The product covers all the top agro commodities viz. Wheat, Corn, cocoa, Sugar, Cotton, Coffee, Soybean, Soybean Oil and composite agricultural Indices. At Orpheus we have saying there is always a bull trend somewhere, this is not conventional thinking as the global community is focused on a few assets. Agro asset not only reduce portfolio risk but also are more tangible in value. To read more about the etf assets, visit www.etfsecurities.com. Launched in Sep 2006, these are award winning ETFs.

Long Agro Index and Short Soyabean Oil is a running pair. The latest update carries the numeric ranking, performance and pair cycles on the respective assets. Regarding the agro perspective, Cotton, Coffee, Soybean Oil, Wheat should continue to underperform the agro complex. While Sugar, Soybean are future potential outperformers for the intermediate weeks ahead. On the pair side we have 1: Long Cotton-Short Wheat, 2: Short Cotton - Long Sugar, 3: Short Wheat - Long Sugar and last but not the least 4: short sugar - long corn.

Strategy Update


Numeric Ranking

Performance Cycles

ALPHA is a pair trading, long only - short only strategy and Numeric Ranking product based on TIME fractals. Time arbitrage, Time Triads, Time fractals are terms coined by Orpheus Research. The signals are carried over three different time frames viz. sub minor (2-3 days), minor (10-30 days) and intermediate (above 30 days). This is a daily signal product. The signals will be illustrated through tracker and running portfolios. Alpha can be used by fund managers for relative allocations, traders for leverage bets and high net worth clients for selective trades. This is a part of the time triads analytics developed by Orpheus Research.

Coverage: Wheat, Sugar, Coffee, Cocoa, Soyabean, Soyabean Oil, Cotton, Corn, Grains, Agro Indices

Performance cycles is a term coined by Orpheus Capitals. This is another name for time triads, time arbitrage, time fractals but expressed in terms of relative performance. It’s a bounded oscillator that moves in a range say from 1 to 30. 1 is top relative performance and 30 is worst performance. The idea is that performance is cyclical. A top performer will underperform in future and vice versa. A top relative performer is also the worst value pick and the top relative underperformer is the best value pick.
