TrimTabs/BarclayHedge Survey of Hedge Fund Managers - October Survey
The topical study from the November 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.
- Our monthly survey of hedge fund managers reveals that managers remain downbeat on U.S. equities but they are much less bearish than four weeks ago. Bearish sentiment on the S&P 500 decreased to 41% in October from 57% (the highest level of 2011) in September. Bullish sentiment increased to 35% from 16% (the lowest level of the year). Note that managers have been markedly bullish on domestic stocks in only two months (January and July) in 2011.
- The net position of speculative traders on S&P 500 and Nasdaq 100 futures and options squares with sourness on the part of hedge fund managers. Spec traders are net sellers and their bearish position is one of the most aggressive in our records. We believe this bodes well for equities from a contrarian standpoint. . .
