It was a cold January for hedge funds, according to the Lipper Hedge Fund Composite Index.
The average fund opened 2010 with a 0.94% drop. While hardly a bloodbath, the losses were widespread, with just one strategy ending the month in the black. That strategy was credit-focus, which added 0.27% in January.
