The TrimTabs/BarclayHedge Survey of Hedge Fund Managers
The topical study from the June 2010 issue of The Hedge Fund Flow Report. Gain insight into industry trends and hedge fund asset flows before you make your next important decision.
Our May survey reveals:
- Hedge fund managers are not enamored of U.S. equities. About 52% of the 143 hedge fund managers we surveyed are bearish on the S&P 500, while only 16% are bullish.
- About 49% of managers are bullish on the U.S. dollar index, while only 15% are bearish.
- Managers have mixed feelings about the 10-year U.S. Treasury note, and 45% are neutral.
- These results square with the behavior of speculative traders, who have large net long positions on U.S. Dollar Index futures, neutral positions on Treasury futures, and neutral to short positions on E-Mini S&P 500 futures.
- Hedge fund managers show little appetite for leverage. About 73% of mangers plan to hold leverage steady, while 20% plan to reduce it. . . .
