CTA Indices – Modest losses in September

Based on a limited number of CTA reporting returns for September, it seems as if most of August’s performance was given back. Despite the first negative month in a long time, CTAs are still up for the year. In most cases, this is due to strong trend in bond markets, although there is large dispersion across performance drivers.
