Investment Strategy
Bluenose Capital Management, LLCs strategy is based on the belief that investments in stock indexes and commodities, not individual stocks or sectors, hold more possibilities for growth than day trading, trend following or buy and hold strategies Bluenose Capital Management, LLCs trading strategy incorporates five vital elements; fundamental analysis, technical analysis, strategy, money-management and risk assessment. After assessing both the fundamental and technical conditions of the market Bluenose Capital Management, LLC then ascertains the best strategy. At the present time, Bluenose Capital Management, LLC believes that the selling of premium or the writing of options on commodities and commodity indexes is the best strategy. Risk assessment and money management work together. We understand the importance of proper money management as well as risk. Although risks cannot be eliminated and profits cannot be guaranteed, with money management and risk control, we will achieve the long-term growth our clients demand. The objective of our strategy is to achieve capital appreciation through the speculative trading of options on the futures contracts.

This strategy, option writing, involves a potentially unlimited risk of loss. .
