Monday, July 22, 2013
Opalesque Industry Update - Six of Newedge’s 11 hedge fund indices reflected positive performances during the first half of 2013.

The Newedge CTA Index closed the first six months of 2013 up 1.03 percent, despite a decline of -1.5 percent in June 2013. The Newedge Trend Index rose 0.76 percent year-to-date as of June 30, whilst being down -2.87 percent for the month. The Newedge Short-Term Traders Index increased 3.75 percent in the first half of 2013, but decreased -1.18 percent in June.

The best performing index through June 30 is the Newedge Commodity Trading Index (Equity), which returned 10.94 percent, having declined -0.92 percent for the month.

“After a solid start to the year, CTA performance broadly dipped in May and June.
