|The UCITS HFS Index continues its downward trend with a setback of -0.70% in May 2012 after its drop of -0.36% and -0.34% in April and March respectively. The largest part of the May loss is attributable to the first two weeks of trading in which the UCITS HFS Index took losses of -0.45% and -0.37%. The third week had less impact, still being negative though (-0.17%). Similar to most of the sub-strategies the UCITS HFS managed to have a positive performance during the last week of May with gains +0.28%, slightly softening the monthly loss. |
