Horseman Capital and CQS both posted double-digit returns in October, a month that saw the Standard & Poor's 500 Index jump 11%. Horseman's Global Fund soared 18.5% last month, erasing its year-to-date losses and leaving it up 6.89% for the year, Reuters reports.

Directional Opportunities is managed by CQS founder Michael Hintze.
