Aaron, top performer , nice work.
where exactly is information on aaron?
sorry, should have noted. Click on red type@ top left, scroll down to managed futs.
right. I missed it.
Thanks, Banjo! I hadn't seen that. The long term trend follower CTA's had a tough June, so I guess our 15.2% return was able to rise to the top.
You're not kidding, Aaron, about the long term trend followers having problems. John Henry's results are up at his website www.jwh.com and June was down for every one of his programs. The losses ranged from –3.9% for the Dollar Program to –14.0% for the Original Investment Program.
So to any futures traders out there...you weren't alone if you had a lousy June.
It's not that bad.
The CSFB/Tremont "Managed Futures" is down 2.2% in June and up 10.5% YTD.
BTW: Did you noticed that managers who trade financials and metals have the best performance?
