Dec 2 2010 | 3:34pm ET

Hedge funds are unlikely to enjoy a second-straight year of double-digit returns after losing significant ground in November.

The average hedge fund lost 1.29% last month, according to the Credit Suisse Liquid Alternative Beta Index. Losses were suffered across all four strategies tracked by the suite of replication indices, with merger arbitrage suffering the worst, dropping 2.42% (up 0.56% YTD).

November's decline pushed the LAB liquid macro index into the red on the year at 0.32% (down 1.35% YTD).

Event-driven funds shed 1.31% last month, but remain up 9.79% on the year. Long/short funds dropped 1.14%, but are up 6.63% on the year.
