Few words about us


Developed trading strategy

SETCO has developed a trading strategy capable of generating profits in both Bull and Bear markets by targeting mispriced stocks, developing a thesis for the future movement of a selected stock, then capitalizing when the market reacts in accordance with the team’s view. Our traders maintain a “watch list” of 20 to 30 longs and shorts from differing sectors (energy, financials, retail etc.) with near-term and medium-term catalysts.

SETCO seeks outsized performance while maintaining tight risk controls with a 3-5% hard stop loss. Our targets for monthly results range from 5% gains to less than 1% losses.

Our traders pay close attention to market sentiment knowing when stocks go up on negative news and down on the positive news, there is potential for either a pause or reversal of their recent trend. Seamless communication and familiarity between our traders is evident on the floor as they monitor trading positions and watch lists in real time and hold an end of the day synopsis every trading day.
