Aug 9 2012 | 1:39pm ET

Hedges funds are up 1.5% this year—almost entirely in July.

The Lyxor Hedge Fund Index returned 1.08% last month. All but two of the 14 strategies tracked by the family of benchmarks were in the black in July, notably long-term commodity trading advisors and long/short equity statistical arbitrage, up 3.2% and 2.1%, respectively.

Equity-market neutral funds rose 1.8% on the month and short-term CTAs  and long-bias funds both rose 1.2%. Convertible arbitrage funds added 1.1%, long/short credit 0.8%, special situations 0.3% and fixed-income arbitrage 0.2%.

Merger arbitrage funds, however, fell 0.3%, and distressed managers lost 0.2%.
