Use momentum – maintain hedges
Monthly report February 2021
Global equity markets started February on a positive note and confidence in an imminent end to the current lockdowns has returned. Hopes for an accelerating pace of vaccination and thus a quick recovery of the economy have made up for the price losses of the last week of January. From mid-month, rising interest rates were the dominant theme at the long end and have caused higher volatility. The associated fear of rising inflation and higher interest rates have had a negative impact on the prices of technology stocks in particular. However, appeasing words from FED Chairman Powell were able to calm investors somewhat for the time being.
Our fund is up 3.95% since the beginning of the year. During the month we continued to be active and our cyclical positions contributed to this positive performance. We are keeping our hedges in place to be prepared for further consolidation.
