How long has SpreadEdge Capital been in business?

Darren Carlat finished his initial development of the trading program in early 2010 which has been used for his own trading activities. In mid 2014, SpreadEdge Capital, LLC was founded, and the trading program was offered to the public

What changes has been made to the trading program over the years?

Initially, the SpreadEdge program entailed trading of both inter-commodity (i.e. Long Wheat, Short Corn) and intra-commodity spreads (i.e. Long Jul Corn, Short Dec Corn). Although the inter-commodity trades were profitable, the volatility was deemed to be too high for most investors and were thus ceased. The 100% focus on intra-commodity (or calendar) spreads has greatly improved the balance between consistency, risk, and reward.
