The Strategy

3D Bull & Bear

Alpha in the S&P 500

Using 3D Capital's state-of-the-art pattern recognition trading rules, 3D Bull/Bear seeks to profit from rallies and declines in the S&P 500.

3D Bull & Bear's goal is to seek profit from identifying and capitalising on S&P 500 rallies and declines.

To stay ahead of the markets, 3D’s trading rules and S&P 500 programs have been continuously refined over the past 15 years by combining the success of our long-side alpha and short-side alpha S&P 500 programs into one investment strategy.

Ask yourself a simple question: Do you own a single portfolio investment that makes money when the stock market declines? 3D Bull & Bear was created to do just that: protect investors from declines in the U.S. stock market.

The stock market doesn’t move in only one direction. It goes up, and down, and the downward moves are where the losses occur. 3D Bull & Bear was designed specifically to help investors preserve and accumulate wealth no matter how the stock market performs. In both Bull and Bear markets, 3D works to deliver alpha for all its investors.
