High-Performance Managed Futures is the first book to show how to design investment portfolios to be independent of the stock market or economy using an unknown investment, managed futures, the most non-correlated asset class in the history of investing. Author Mark Melin illustrates how to develop a diversified portfolio split among non-correlated asset classes.Judging by the major indices, this little known method significantly outperformed traditional stock and bond investments over the past thirty years. While managed futures has significantly outperformed the stock market for over thirty years, the investment method was generally ignored by Wall Street financial advisors and hidden from individual investors.For the first time a book will show exactly how to develop stock market neutral investment portfolios. In this book, a Nobel Prize winning investment method is advanced, updated for modern times with stunning clarity and compelling prose to illuminate a new path for managing investments so as not to be entirely dependent on the economy at large.
