ICMA Centre students Christmas party
The party started just after six, as students came out of their lectures and seminars to join in the festive atmosphere, with Christmas decorations and carols playing around the Centre. The students and staff tucked in to the buffet, including Christmas treats such as traditional mince pies, and indulged in a variety of festive drinks.
All of the students had raffle tickets and there were plenty of great gifts to be won. As the festivities continued even Santa Claus made an appearance and the students enjoyed having their photo taken with him.
The night was a great success and both students and staff enjoyed the opportunity to relax, look back on an eventful first term, and celebrate the upcoming holidays.

Curved Momentum: A new trading strategy for commodity futures
Momentum trading is a popular strategy in the commodity futures markets. The idea is simple. Suppose that an investor wants to invest in the first nearby contract of several commodity markets, e.g. crude oil, live cattle and gold. At the end of each month, the trader ranks these assets according to their past return performance, observed over a measurement period of 12 months for example, from the top performing asset to the bottom performing asset. The investor opens a long position in the first nearby of the markets that performed well and a short position in the first nearby of the markets that underperformed. These positions are held throughout the next month. This strategy has performed historically well historically and has attracted the interest of investors.
