The near consensus among all analysts that Fed would curb its money-printing ways caused several Macro Funds to establish protective hedges. HFRX Macro/CTA Index was down 0.2% in September, and is down 2.7% for the year.
Omni Macro Fund, was down 0.8% in last month, trimming the return for the year down to -3.09%.
