Ouch. This month really hurt the index, as it fell from almost yearly highs to a negative year-to-date return. Though the index had a rough month, it was a market as a whole that cratered, with biotech stocks suffering a bit more than others. Almost every single position lost value (way to go Dyadic!), with some losing almost a third of their value. Hopefully November is better!
