Hedge funds posted strong gains in March, with the HFRX Global Hedge Fund Index up 1.24% during the month (-1.87% YTD) on the back of rebound in the global financial markets as investor risk tolerance returned, reported Hedge Fund Research. The HFRX Market Directional Index gained +3.64% while the HFRX Equity Hedge Index gained +2.79.

HFR said that the global markets are showing signs of recovering from early year losses as the U.S. Federal Reserve moderated expectations for multiple increases in U.S. rates in 2016. Equity markets posted strongest gains since October led by sharp recoveries in emerging markets and energy exposures, with regional gains led by China, Brazil, Russia and India.

The data provider stated, "U.S. treasury yields ended the month little changed on the dovish Fed outlook, while European yields were mixed and high yield credit gained. Oil and natural gas also posted strong gains to recover early year losses, while coffee and lumber commodities also surged for the month. The U.S. dollar fell against the euro, Swiss franc, British pound sterling and Japanese yen on Fed outlook."
