Top Ten: Best performing small CTAs for July.

Monday, September 14, 2009

We feature different top managers in every issue.

There is some evidence that trend followers are starting to do better, but on the whole commodity trading advisors are still in the red as far as one can tell from indices. Yet some are doing very well. The CTAs below manage less than $10 million in assets; that may be a factor in their strong returns. They've certainly done better than larger advisors.

This data is from Managed Account Research Inc., which has added new CTAs.
