|The UCITS HFS Index continues its downward trend with a loss of -0.09% in June 2012 after it already dropped -1.40% from March till May 2012. The loss this month is attributable to the first two weeks of trading in which the UCITS HFS Index took losses of -0.31% and -0.22%. Although the performance of the broad index turned around in week three with gains of +0.30%, week four started negative, only turning positive (+0.14%) after a strong last day of trading. Still this was not enough to turn the June result positive from a month to date perspective. From all funds tracked 51.26% posted positive returns in June 2012.|
