Flyer Forex Fund
At the University of Dayton, within the Hanley Trading Center , we have been building the Flyer FOREX Fund. The Flyer FOREX Fund (FFF) is a leveraged currency portfolio managed by a student-run proprietary trading group. FFF utilizes a non-discretionary algorithmic model that incorporates trend indicators including volatility, momentum and GIRTH. The FFF has two primary goals: 1) to educate student-members on finance by providing them with an in-depth experience trading real money in the spot currency market; and 2) to teach student-members the disciplines of money management in order to prepare them for financial management positions. For the academic year 2009-2010, we managed the FFF utilizing simulation money. We have a seventeen member advisory board.
The Flyer FOREX Fund was founded in 2009 and is believed to be the only student run algorithmic currency fund in the United States.
