Valia Capital Management is a short-term (typically 1-10 day holds), 100% discretionary futures and options strategy. The primary vehicles utilized in the program are outright futures contracts (long/short), futures spreads (long/short), and options strategies (long, with occasional, highly selective short). Valia Capital aims to utilize the managers’ vast background in futures trading and expertise in several key methods of technical analysis to serve its investors with uncorrelated alpha and highly prudent risk management.

We take trades which we believe have a strong possibility of success based on a confluence of multiple technical patterns occurring simultaneously. Here are several of the technical structures which inform our trading, with visual examples (note charts do NOT represent actual Valia trades):
