Perry Kaufman’s Rapid Strike includes three exclusive methodologies designed to take advantage of short-term market movements:
- Fast Strike Mean Reversion
- Fast Strike Short Cycle
- Fast Strike High Momentum
Each strategy targets a specific pattern:
Fast Strike Mean Reversion - targets profit by going the opposite way from the immediate price move. This method works best when prices are noisy and change direction often, especially on Equity Index markets and 30-year Treasury Bonds. Trend traders can use this to trade Short-term interest rates, Euro, and Crude Oil.
The Fast Strike Short Cycle - best for markets that have a strong upward or downward bias. The Dow, Eurodollar Interest rates, and many stocks have a strong and noticeable upwards bias. While the VIX and grains have been edging lower for years. The Fast Strike Short Cycle strategy has been used for over 50 years and is built to take advantage of trade biases and provide the following:
- Excel in high-noise markets
- Hold a trade for no more than 3 days
- Tell you when the setup has occurred so you can trade the next bar
- Tell you when to take profits and get out
Fast Strike High Momentum Strategy - applies to ONLY the VIX ETFs such as UVXY. While equity index markets are noisy, the VIX goes up quickly and down slowly. Profit is achieved by selling on the lower price move. This system will also go long on a VIX rally, but it will exit quickly.
