    Someone to explain what are these CTA and how hedge funds are using them on the forex.
    I've just read an article about that but didn't really understand most of it.
    The only thing that looked clear was that following the trend will be tougher as these CTA seem to allow hedge funds to change position super fast. Someone know something clear to read about that ?

    Thx but I am not sure we talk about the same things.
    The CTA I was reading about are tools for hedge funds, I don't think they are in need for this kind of advice
