TrimTabs/BarclayHedge Survey of Hedge Fund Managers - June Survey
The topical study from the July 2011 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 have turned bearish on U.S. equities. About 38% of the 87 managers we surveyed in the past week are bearish on the S&P 500, up from 29% in May, while 27% are bullish, down from 30%.
- The equity futures positions of speculative traders confirm the gloom. Spec traders were net sellers of S&P 500 futures and Nasdaq futures in each of the past six weeks. But the selling has been light by historical standards, which suggests that many traders want to see more serious damage (the S&P and the Dow have not broken below their 200-day averages) before putting on bear market trades. . .
