This Towson, MD-based fund run by Terri Becks is said to be hurting as a result of the breakdown of the Yen carry trade, as well as the ensuing credit crunch in general. The "completely" computer-driven fund is down 10-12% as of the end of July, according to a source. The fund reportedly deals in futures, stocks, and bonds.

Once again, we cannot help but be amused as a fund claiming to be "hedged" for volatility is showing signs of sickness upon encountering some actual rough seas.

Important: This fund is on our list of hedge funds that are apparently ailing or which we think are worth watching for any other reason. Ailing funds haven't shut down, but they've suffered significant value declines and/or temporarily halted redemptions. Funds on watch may not even have unusual declines, but may be posted if it is felt there may be risk of developing a more serious condition eventually.
