Despite the fastest rise in interest rates since 1981, and an inverted yield curve where short-term rates are much higher than long-term bond yields, the United States has not (at least yet) experienced the recession forecast by the vast majority of market pundits and economists. Why not?
There is a risk of loss in trading futures. Futures trading is not suitable for all persons. While managed futures can help enhance returns and reduce risk, they can also result in further losses in a portfolio.
Studies conducted of manage futures as a whole may not be indicative of the performance of any individual CTA or CTA index.
A CTA index may not represent the entire universe of CTA’s, and in most cases, individuals cannot invest in these indices. The actual rates of CTA returns may be significantly different and more volatile than those of a CTA index.
