TrimTabs/BarclayHedge Survey of Hedge Fund Managers - July Survey
The topical study from the August 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 reversed their stance on U.S. equities. Bullish sentiment on the S&P 500 soared to 43%, the largest share since December 2010, from 27% in June. Bearish sentiment sank to 27%, the smallest share since January 2011, from 38%.
- Equity futures flows have yet to confirm the shift to bullishness. Speculative traders were net buyers of equity futures in only two of the past eight weeks, perhaps in part because of the uncertainty surrounding the debt ceiling. Meantime short interest decreased in the past month, albeit modestly.
- Hedge fund managers remain very sour on long-dated Treasuries. Bearish sentiment on the 10-year note changed little in July (42% versus 44% in June, the largest share in six months). Bullish sentiment sank to 12%, the smallest share in more than seven months, from 18% in June. Meantime managers remain modestly bullish on the greenback.. . .
