STAIRS our long short product has proved to be the most effective hedge to long positions in these troubled times. In the last quarter it has clocked a return of 77%+ on capital (at 3x leverage) or in other words more than 200% on margin.
An allocation of 10-20% could have saved losses in most portfolio. Even at lower leverage the gains would have offset a significant part of losses. This is a certainly food for thought for the un-hedged.
