Myojo Japan L/S & Short Biased Ark Fund (Japanese Long Short & Short Bias Equity Strategy)

Based on the idea that the US finished quantitative easing to normalize its monetary policy and Japan will still continue a huge quantitative easing monetary policy which will continue to lead to yen depreciation.
