Crypto Funds Drop 29.2% in March Reveals Hedge Fund Data Specialist

In theory, hedge funds employ complex investment strategies that should allow them to achieve high returns both in bearish and bullish markets. In practice many fail due to short term thinking and over-leveraged trading. These can be especially costly and not suitable for the young and volatile cryptocurrency market as any long time bitcoin HODLer can tell you.  

Barclay Cryptocurrency Traders Index

Founded in 1985 and formerly known as The Barclay Group, Barclay Hedge serves institutional investors around the world in the field of hedge fund and managed futures performance measurement and portfolio management. In addition to 25 proprietary indices, it maintains 148 hedge fund indices for financial institutions in North America and Europe in its role as an independent index calculation agent.

'Based on the knowledge gained from our 32 years of experience in collecting, compiling, analyzing, and indexing performance data from alternative investment funds, we wanted to minimize statistical biases which can distort historical index returns,' said Sol Waksman, president and founder. 'We chose a January 2018 start date to avoid survivorship bias, backdating and selection bias.”

Cryptocurrency Funds Struggling to Survive

'The ability to trade Bitcoin futures on exchanges such as CME and Cboe, which are respected worldwide, provides a much-needed level of transparency, investor safety, and credibility to the price'discovery process and creates a level of institutional legitimacy that is crucial for growth in this sector. Within days of the launch of Bitcoin futures, Bitcoin rose to its all-time high of just under $20,000 on December 18 last year. Today's prices are just over $8,000. Folks have their opinions, but no one really knows if it's a bubble or a correction,' commented Waksman.
