    Down 20 plus % this year. so much for the common man hedge fund

    I guess the +46.56% for 2008 does not factor in?

    I was on the "B shares" rollercoaster for 2 years and redeemed my shares for a tidy 40% profit after some nice drawdowns.

    These funds are not short term investments Smurf, or meant for your IRA!
  3. a couple of MA would have saved the fund from the crash
  4. they're using the ema cross for their trend-following systems but i guess they didnt realize curve fitting only works in hindsight.

    A 20% drawdown for a hedge fund is just another day. It's comical how ET pounds on highly successful people when they get into a rut. I imagine the guy who operates this fund has wads of cash falling out of his pockets. You guys act like a 20% DD is a permanent thing. Instead of criticizing this fund you should realize that <b>now is the time to invest in it.</b> Why is it that people will cheer and rave about how well a guy is doing when the equity curve is heading north and boo and hiss when it's heading south? You should be doing the exact opposite.

    Wake up ET -- realize investors/traders chase the market in both directions. If you want to win you need to do the exact opposite.

    Do a quick search on Warren Buffett when the market was crashing or when he sunk $5B into GS. He doesn't look so stupid now, does he?
  8. LOL :D Yea, moving averages are the holy grail LOL :p
  9. Present the whole picture, marketsurf. Snapshots do not count !

    Although Superfund might have some performance problems, they still have an impressive track record. Show me a mainstream futures fund surviving over 13 years !

    I thought you closed up shop after your disasterous GS call ? Nice job stepping inf front of that steamroller.

    You and VN are a lot alike when it comes to trading. Both like to blowout with no gameplan.
