Use CTAs to Manage Futures in Your Portfolio
Be Confident Investing in Managed Futures
When you open a Managed Futures account with Midwest Futures you can be assured that your portfolio is in the hands of professional commodity futures traders. The Commodity Trading Advisors (CTAs) that we choose to manage your Managed Futures account are skilled in analyzing the risk and rewards of each potential Managed Futures investment. These money managers research the volatility of each commodity futures trade as well as assess the profitability of each financial transaction. In addition, each Managed Futures account is regulated by the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) to ensure your confidence in each transaction.
Diversify your portfolio
Utilizing Managed Futures in your investment portfolio opens the door to many other futures trading opportunities. Unlike stocks and bonds, Managed Futures accounts can participate in over 150 different markets worldwide, including stock indexes, financial instruments, agricultural and tropical products, precious and nonferrous metals, currencies, and energy products. Utilizing these various different trade markets can open your Managed Futures investment portfolio to many new and exciting trading opportunities. Trading in the commodity futures markets can quickly lead to large losses as well as gains, but taking that risk allows for the possibility of above average returns on your Managed Futures investments; and in doing so, adding liquidity to the market.

Enjoy tax benefits
The Tax Act of 1981 ruled that short-term profits in commodity futures trades are treated as 60% long-term (therefore being subject to a maximum tax of 15%), and 40% short-term (normal taxable income). On the other hand, short-term trading profits in stock, which are stocks held for less than one year, are treated as 100% short-term. This favorable tax treatment for commodity futures trading can translate for those in the upper tax brackets into savings of as much as 30% on taxes on short-term gains in commodity futures trades versus stocks.
