2011 Top Traders have familiar ring

Each year Futures profiles a handful of commodity trading advisors who outperformed their peers. While Futures prides itself on finding unique and undiscovered traders, one of the characteristics of managers who did exceptionally well in 2011 — whether they were profiled or simply near the tops of the performance charts — is that they were highlighted in Futures before, either as is a back page profile, Hot New CTA or Top Trader.

Below we show the 2011 performance of numerous commodity trading advisors who have been profiled in Futures in recent years.
