Financial
Futures

Index contracts and interest rate (debt) contracts are two types of financial futures. Index contracts provide exposure to specific market index values (Nasdaq, E-Mini S&P, Russell 2000, Dow Jones et al.), while interest rate contracts are used for exposure to the interest rate of a specific debt instrument (5-year and 10-year notes, 30-year bond et al.).

Currency
Futures

Currency contracts provide exposure to the exchange rate of a real currency or to a crypto currency (Ethereum, Bitcoin et al.).

Energy
Futures

Energy contracts provide exposure to the price of common energy products (natural gas, crude oil, RBOB Gasoline, heating oil et al.).

Metal

These contracts provide exposure 
to the prices of specific agricultural products, including dairy products 
and things that are grown (also known as Softs).

Why The
Name

Sub-Four refers to running a mile in less than 4 minutes – a feat thought impossible before May 6, 1954. Until Bannister, nobody had been able to run the mile in less than 4 minutes despite recorded efforts for over 1,000 years and very serious efforts starting in 1886. Before Bannister’s feat, many argued and believed that the human body was unable to run a mile in less than 4 minutes, that it was physically impossible. Against all odds and expert opinions, Roger Bannister proved it could be done.

Breaking
The Barrier

Roger Bannister relentlessly visualized his achievement to create certainty within himself without seeing any proof that it was possible. While nobody else had been able to break the 4-minute mark despite hundreds of years of effort, 46 days after Bannister’s feat John Landry ran the mile in 3 minutes 58 seconds. About a year later, three more runners also broke the 4-minute threshold, doing it in the same race.

The Roger
Bannister
Effect

Like Roger, we push ourselves beyond what we think we’re capable of doing. And there were times when we wanted to quit. But we refused to settle. We focused on our passion and envisioned the reality of living our dreams. Roger Bannister not only raised the bar, he became the bar that inspired others to be better too and we seek to do the same in our field of work.
