June was a difficult month for hedge funds, with most strategies suffering a loss. Managed futures funds fell the most of the global composite indices, dropping 1.90%.

• With its 0.95% drop, this is the worst June performance for the Global Composite since HedgeFund Intelligence began collecting performance data in 1998 (it's the worst month overall for the Composite since May 2010, when the index fell 2.12%).

• The Global Managed Futures Index was down 2.21% for the year, making this its worst first half since at least 1998.
