Equity markets continue to trend higher with yet another consecutive month of positive returns. Inflation fears seem to have subsided and the Fed is looking at tapering bond purchases which the market has already expressed. We seem to be at a crossroads as the global economy determines which direction we go. What will impact and stimulate growth? Will G7 countries work together and how will the COVID variant(s) play out for the rest of the year. It seems there is more uncertainty across a broad range of topics. It should make for an exciting remainder of 2021. The IASG Agriculture Index top the month of August posting a 1.00% return. Managers diversified across grains, meats and softs led the way. The Trend Following index was subdued posting a +0.17% as trend in indexes contributed on the positive side while long energy and rates positions failed to contribute. This month marks the 20th anniversary of the September 11th attacks. It is hard to think 20 years have passed as we look back and reflect on how much has changed in this world since. May we all never forget. Options Made Simple For any profession, once you have done it for a while, some concepts become second nature to the point that you forget that not everyone (or very few) understands them at even a basic level. I find that options are the concept that confuses people the most and one that is perhaps most valuable to understand. The futures industry uses these instruments in a variety of ways that you can apply to your own portfolio as well. » Read more Established Track Record > 5 Years CTA/Program Assets Aug-21 YTD Style/Sector Adalpha Asset Management Diversified Short-Term Program $56.7M -0.56 6.20 Short Term Diversified Genio Capital Ltd.
