The Newedge AlternativeEdge Short-Term Traders and CTA indices picked up where they left off last year, gaining 0.94% and 0.17%, respectively, last month after finishing 2008 in double-digits.
“The real story here is not the return of the index but its diversification characteristics,” said Brian Walls, chairman of the Newedge Index Committee. “The STTI continues to exhibit low correlation to all other asset classes.”
STTI’s top performers last month were Quantitative Investment Mgmt. Global (up 6.29%), Conquest Macro (up 6.2%) and Cabana Capital Global Diversified (up 6.12%).
The AlternativeEdge Short-Term Traders Index finished 2008 up 11.74% and the Newedge CTA Index gained 13.12% last year.
