TrimTabs/BarclayHedge Survey of Hedge Fund Managers - November Survey
The topical study from the December 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.
- Hedge fund managers remain bearish on equities. About 39% of the 83 managers we surveyed in November are bearish on the S&P 500, while only 31% are bullish. Most managers responded on November 16, when the S&P 500 dove 1.6%, so our results might be skewed. But bearish sentiment exceeded bullish sentiment in six of the past seven surveys, which suggests managers are indeed predominantly bearish on U.S. equities.
- Bearish sentiment on the U.S. dollar index surged to 44% in November from 30% in October, while bullish sentiment held steady (33% against 32%).
- Sentiment on the 10-year Treasury is the biggest change in our November survey. Bearish sentiment soared to 49% from 28% in October, while bullish sentiment sank to 13% - the smallest reading since the inception of our survey in May - from 22%. We attribute the spike to the fact that Fed Treasury purchases are concentrated in short-term and medium-term securities. . .
