THE POWER OF EXPERIENCE
PROFESSIONAL TRADING MANAGEMENT IN GLOBAL STOCK MARKET INDICIES, CURRENCIES, AND COMMODITIES.
DERIVATIVE TRADING INVESTOR ACCOUNTS
DERIVATIVE TRADING INVESTOR ACCOUNTS
EMPIRICAL is a professional trading operation that is active across all time zones, taking advantage of trading opportunities in global stock market indices, currencies, and commodities.
We trade our own capital in a proprietary trading account and utilize a multi account interface that enables us to manage multiple investor accounts without the need to create an investment fund.
Derivative trading investor accounts receive the exact same trades executed in our proprietary trading account distributed automatically according to a ratio depending on the size of the equity in each investor account.
Our trading platform has direct access to interbank trading prices from various liquidity providers (LPs) that are pooled together so that trades are executed at the best possible prices at all times, with lightning-fast execution speeds and minimal slippage.
A derivative trading investor account will receive hundreds of trades per month with the aim to profit from market price movements - whether the market goes up or down.
THE POWER OF EXPERIENCE
EMPIRICAL is run by Robert Nash, a professional trader with a deep understanding of market behavior from over 32 years of trading experience in derivatives on global stock market indices, currencies, and commodities.
In 1990, Robert began trading his own accounts and became the largest private trader in futures and options on the Australian Share Price Index and 10 Year Government Bonds. He was one of the first traders to use Market Profile and Capital Flow Software. In 2002, he moved to Singapore and traded his own discretionary trading accounts on global futures and options markets. In 2010, he founded proprietary trading firm One Global FX. In 2013, he founded Empirical Fund Managers, a licensed fund management company for management of the Empirical Premium Fund.
In 2023, Robert started offering professional trading management utilizing a trading platform multi account interface enabling the same trades he makes in his own accounts to be allocated direct to derivative trading investor accounts.
Robert has lived in South East Asia since 2002, living in Singapore, Hong Kong, Philippines, and Thailand.
SECURITY, TRANSPARENCY, LIQUIDITY
Accounts can be funded in a choice of currencies and are held in the investors name with the largest and most regulated financial derivatives brokerage worldwide, with a current paid-up capital of over $322 million.
To ensure the security of investor funds, funds remain in the investor accounts, the trading manager does not have access to these accounts and therefore cannot make any withdrawals. The individual investors are the only ones who are able to make deposits and withdrawals to or from accounts. Account owners can withdraw capital at any time.
Our technology tracks the balances, positions, profits and losses and margin levels for all accounts in real time. Investors have full transparency to account activity, and online access to profit and loss of open and closed positions. Daily and monthly account statements are sent to investors, direct from the brokerage.
By making smart use of leverage applied to derivatives the return on investment after a high-water mark performance fee is deducted can be expected to be around 60% yearly using conservative margin and position sizing. The simple math is there are 250 trading days per year and only 0.25% net daily return is required. Greater potential exists.

TRADING FOR A LIVING FOR OVER 32 YEARS
I have been trading for a living for over 32 years and have managed multiple million-dollar accounts of my own capital and that of investors, owned a proprietary trading company, and a hedge fund management company.
I trade my own money, so I am not taking unnecessary risks. Contrary to popular belief, derivative trading is not as risky as many would think. The art of speculation in derivatives is not fixed in a single direction. This means we can buy a derivative (if we expect its price to increase) or sell a derivative (if we expect its price to decrease).
In terms of the risk involved in derivative trading, it can be as well managed as any investment. There is your directional bias (up/down direction) followed by the levels at which you would close out a profit (or a loss). So, in many senses, it is not that different compared to traditional investing and in fact, the ability to play both directions (up/down) gives you an edge over investors who only look for investments that will rise.
Long-term success trading in the markets demands an understanding of market behavior. Crowds move markets and at major market turning points, the crowds are almost always wrong. Crowd sentiment swings from pessimism to optimism and back in a natural sequence, creating patterns in price movements. When crowd sentiment is overwhelmingly positive or overwhelmingly negative it's a signal that the trend is exhausted, and the market is ready to move powerfully in the opposite direction. I have made huge profits by identifying shifts in crowd sentiment at major market turning points.
I have been successful because I have made smart use of leverage and position sizing, focused on understanding market behavior, identified repeatable timing patterns enabling me to capitalize on consistent and predictable time of day, day of week, and month of year trading opportunities, and utilized intelligent order placement to position trades.
