Market development

{{'fund.detail.general.perDate' | labelize:[ fundDate(,'llll') ]}}

August was a tough month for GTAA as the strategy took hits from the strong market movements in the US, due to robust net job creation and better than expected economic growth expectations for the third quarter. This drove equity markets up and rates down, hurting our short positions in both asset classes. In Australia, the local currency was driven down by the domestic leadership crisis, resulting in positive returns from our Australian dollar short position, offset however by our short position in the strong US dollar due to President Trump’s trade war rhetoric.

Expectation of fund manager

{{'fund.detail.general.perDate' | labelize:[ fundDate(,'llll') ]}}

Equity exposure was brought back to a short position at the start of the new month (September) and we maintained our short position in US bonds because of the negative scores in valuation and monetary policy. We have positive bond exposure in Europe and Japan. We are short in the Australian dollar versus the US dollar, because of its negative momentum, as well as its unattractive valuation compared to the USD/EUR pair.
