For the second month in a row, CTAs outperformed hedge fund strategies. According to the Lyxor CTA peer group, the strategy was up +1.6% in April, which brings the year-to-date performance close to +5%. In April, CTAs benefitted from the robust performance of equity markets, the rebound of the US Dollar Index and commodity price movements. So far in May the strategy is down due to the reversal in risk appetite but long fixed income positions helped protect portfolios.
