Managed Futures keeps positive performance rolling; Up 1.05% in November

The strong 2nd half performance typically witnessed from managed futures investors is coming to fruition as 2013 comes to a close. For the 2nd month in a row, the Barclayhedge BTOP 50 Index not only finished with a positive performance, but October and November’s monthly performance finished above the 1% mark {Disclaimer: Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results}. This may or may not have something to do with the recent development of both long and short trends in the futures space as of late, including but not limited to: short metals, long stocks (US & Nikkei), Currencies (long euro, long sterling, short yen, Canadian dollar), short bonds, short corn, short wheat, short sugar.

This also brings the BTOP 50 out of the red for YTD performance, while other indices not far behind, with the average YTD performance of the major managed futures indices coming to -0.75% {Disclaimer: Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results}. If we see similar numbers in December, the asset class may be able to avoid finishing the year with negative returns 4 out of the last 5 years.
