Barclay Hedge Fund Index Slips 0.11% in October; Intra-Month Volatility Extracts Its Toll

FAIRFIELD, Iowa, November 19, 2014 — Hedge funds lost 0.11% in October, according to the Barclay Hedge Fund Index compiled by BarclayHedge. After ten months in 2014 the Index is up 2.87%.

“Continued easing by the ECB and the BOJ as the Federal Reserve wound down its bond purchases, the unraveling of crowded trades in Abbvie/Shire and Fannie/Freddie and S&P 500 earnings exceeding expectations propelled risk asset prices sharply lower in the first half of the month, only to recoup those losses by month’s end," says Sol Waksman, founder and president of BarclayHedge.
