FX funds begin 2016 on a positive note

Parker FX Index meanders into positive territory in January

Ups and downs: January sees FX funds make gains, but performance remains poor over the 12-month period

Foreign exchange funds tracked by the Parker FX Index kicked off the new year on an up note, achieving average returns of 0.68% in January.

The best performer managed a yield of 4.6% as diminished risk appetite amid concerns over China's growth benefited the dollar and those betting on gains in the greenback.
