Hedge funds shed 0.42% in January, according to the Lyxor Hedge Fund Index.
Long-term commodity trading advisors were the biggest culprits for the drop, losing 3.12% in the first month of 2010. Short-term CTAs didn’t do much better, dropping 1.93% last month.
Global macro funds lost 1.27% and long-bias equity funds 0.65%.
Not every strategy lost ground last month. Long/short credit arbitrage funds added 2.1%, short-bias equity funds rose 1.55% and equity market-neutral funds 1.51%.
Lyxor, the industry’s most pessimistic index, rose only 5.15% last year; most indices rose nearly—or in excess of—20%.
