2020 CTA Challenge — July Trends

Managed Futures Performance – Big Moves In July

We are only a few weeks into July and already see some big performance moves for the month. Multiple programs in the CTA Challenge have positive returns up double digits so far in July. There is no specific discipline that is excelling. Programs that trade Global Macro, Trend Following and Discretionary Commodity Spread/Arbitrage are showing good numbers.

On the flip side, the programs down this month are not giving back large amounts. The largest loss we see this month is only down -6% while two-thirds of the pack is posting positive returns in July. The average loser is down -1.75% in July and the average winner is up +2.79. The distribution of returns for July is skewed heavily to the right; a good thing for Managed Futures this month.

To better navigate this landscape, interested investors should contact a Coquest representative with any questions on accessing Managed Futures.

Please note that Managed Futures investments and trading in futures, in general, can carry leverage and a high degree of risk. It is not suitable for all investors. See the full disclosure notice at the bottom of this newsletter. And, as always, past performance is not indicative of future results.

Featured CTA

Metolius Capital LLC operates a systematic global macro futures investment program combining a macro/fundamental approach with price based statistics to create trades. While price is always the final arbiter, we believe the unique mix of our approach to the analysis of the market, provides diversification and less concentration risk than the traditional CTA model. The strategy uses highly liquid futures contracts, providing transparency and scalability through a team of experienced individuals. We invest significantly in infrastructure and resources to meet the exacting standards of our investors. The models are diversified across markets, sectors and time frames which we feel represents a unique combination of uncorrelated logical and quantitative ideas.
