7 03. About the Foreign Exchange (Forex) Market Foreign exchange (Forex) is the cross-country exchange of currencies and is the largest and most liquid financial market in the world. The foreign exchange market (forex, FX, or currency market) is a global decentralized market for the trading of currencies. In terms of volume of trading, it is by far the largest and most liquid financial market in the world. The main participants in this market are the larger international banks, financial institutions and retail traders. With an estimated $5.3 trillion plus in currencies traded in a single day, the Forex market eclipses the trading of other types of securities. Trillions USD traded per day in Forex market since 1999 to date The G10 Currencies Trillion USD per day United States - US Dollar (USD) United Kingdom - Great British Pound (GBP) Canada - Canadian Dollar (CAD) France - Euro (EUR) Germany - Euro (EUR) Italy - Euro (EUR) Japan - Japanese Yen (JPY) YEAR Netherlands - (EUR) Sweden - Swedish Krona (SEK) Belgium - Euro (EUR) Switzerland - Swiss Franc (CHF)

8 04. Why let QLC manage your investment funds? Quantum Leap Capital specializes in trading the spot foreign exchange market, we bring together the experience, knowledge, strength and expertise that we ve gained the past few years between two money managers under one umbrella, this is how Quantum Leap Capital was born and grew from there. QLC has a proven style and strengths, we offer enhanced risk management and access to some of the best specialists in the FX industry. What s more, QLC offers attractive potential returns, affordability, probably the least expensive way of investing worldwide and the convenience of being able to benefit from a blend of different investment strategies and trading styles, combined in a single sphere. 07

9 05. Our Team We are a small dynamic team comprising out of two professional traders who are also the founders of QLC with years of Forex trading and Business management experience. Over the years QLC s founders gained a high level of expertise in currency trading, we have an in-depth understanding of what drives the market and performance, but we also developed our own distinct risk-return strategy. QLC set clear objectives in order to provide our clients attractive returns over the medium to long term. QLC applies and conforms to a maximum value at risk* (VAR) of 20%, even though we never reached this VAR up to now. We also pride ourselves to never have reached a margin call ever. 08

10 06. QLC s FX Trading Strategy & Trading Plan QLC has developed its trading strategy over a long term and constantly seeks to improve and adapt to changing market conditions, our trading strategy is a combination of various factors and opportunities. We are therefore proactive in our trading strategy so that when decision time arrives, preparation has been done. We look for opportunity to catch reversals of the last trend and hold the positions until the current trend ends and once again reverses. By using chart logic to read the market and price action to trade, we identify the tipping points in the charts ahead of the turn and prepare ourselves to jump in the trades with accuracy. Every trading period, whether daily, weekly or monthly, can be used to calculate Pivot levels relevant to the next period; a Pivot level, 2 support and 2 resistance levels. QLC uses these points to enter or exit trades. Fibonacci also plays a big role in our trading strategy, for instance a specific movement in the market will give rise to several Fibonacci levels, the calculated retracement levels are then used to enter a trade in the direction of the original movement and the calculated extension levels are used to take positions in the opposite direction of the original movement. This is typically one example where we apply Fibonacci levels amongst others. We re constantly looking for repeating patterns in the market and trade accordingly, following the previous patterns and confirmations. QLC reads market behavior and understands the different sessions together with their changeovers; we have identified the best sessions that work for us and understand the accumulation phase of the market, hence we use it to trade in our advantage and decision making. Focussing on the hi-lo board enables us to spot the patterns where the market would turn. Our take is that there is always a high and a low each day, the challenge of course is to pick the high or low of the day with accuracy, this we identify with success to our advantage. QLC successfully recognizes shift candles which puts us on the right side of the market, trading in-line with the market makers. We constantly identify patterns likely to put us in high probability trades.

11 07. Risk Management With investor comfort paramount, Quantum Leap Capital offers investor security in the following ways: QLC uses a systematic approach to actively reduce risk at source and incorporate tried and tested risk management techniques into our overall trading strategy and trading plan. QLC employs stringent risk controls on all Client investments with a proven trading strategy. Dynamic stop-losses and relative hedging are utilized to reflect directional bias. Investment positions will be mainly in G10 currencies, although other currencies may be traded if the opportunity arises and only if we believe it would enhance our Client returns. Draw-downs never exceeds 20%, maximum value at risk is therefore 20%. Only cash settled (t+2) spot foreign exchange transactions will be used by QLC. Stop-losses are set at a standard of between 1% to 3.5%. No more than 2% of the capital invested will be traded in any given trade. 10

12 08. QLC s competitive advantage Successfully investing in today s market requires lateral thinking, proven methodology and a wealth of industry experience. Quantum Leap Capital is proud to offer all of this and more, in one place. We pride ourselves on a focused approach due to the fact that we re not too big to lose it, we focus on what we do best, trading the FX market. QLC offers their Clients to invest in the FX market with a risk averse approach which best suits most of our Clients needs. QLC s Forex trading knowledge and experience, with stringently applied risk management by sticking to the rules the market dictates, ensures that your invested money is working to your best possible advantage. Our founders have profound depth of industry knowledge; our systems are robust and we have a long-standing experience of delivering optimum performance, this is our number one goal. 11

13 09. QLC s Terms Minimum investment $1, Annual management fee 0% * Performance fee 0% ** Dealing Share Classes/Base Currencies Daily USD, EUR, GBP Notes: If the FX trading account is opened in the name of the investor/ individual/company/fund at QLC s preferred broker, the Annual management fee will be waived.
