CTAs End 2017 on a Positive Note
The flash estimate for the Barclay CTA Index, compiled by BarclayHedge, indicates a 0.54% gain in December. The CTA Index ended 2017 with a 0.69% gain. “December’s 1.11% rise in the S&P 500 Index extended its unprecedented winning streak to 14 consecutive months and helped push trend traders’ returns a bit more into the black for 2017,” says Sol Waksman, founder and president of BarclayHedge. He adds: “Continuing uptrends in energy and base metals were the main profit contributors from the commodity sector.” Diversified traders gained 0.93% in December, systematic traders were up 0.40%, discretionary traders added 0.36%, and agricultural traders rose 0.23%.
