I jsut looked at them.  Have you seen their returns?  I think they are either a hedge fund or limited partnership, correct?  I couldn't tell what the investor requirements are.

I have seen the returns and their trading systems.  It seems that their theory works on dramatic shifts in the futures markets. For example 2008 was a pretty insane return: 30%...

It is essentially a hedge fund, but legally they can't call it that so they call it managed futures... And per SEC guidlines it has to be an LP offering, so the typical $250K networth(not including home auto etc..) or $70K income and $70K networth, but varies by state... also by law can't allocate more than 10% in this investment...
 
I put some people in end of August and they have done real well...up something like 12% or so...
