Who got squeezed?
PostPosted: Fri Aug 17, 2007 6:05 pm Reply with quoteBack to top

So, that short squeeze yesterday and the rate move on options expiration day had to of caused a world of hurt for at least a couple of hedge funds this morning -- combine that with the redemption issues, and ... I would be expecting to hear of a few implosions today.

But alas, nothing yet.

Some hedge funds are having a hard time, January was some of the worst industry performance seen in 5 years. The reality is that many banks are worse off than most hedge funds. Hedge funds are now doing credit checks on the prime brokerage divisions of banks to make sure THEY won't implode. Maybe Aaron should start Bank-Implode.com Smile
