Bridgewater is the largest Hedgefonds in the World:

All net DAX short positions, build in the past trading days by Bridgewater:

Deutsche Telekom AG: 0,50 %
SAP SE: 0,60 %
Deutsche Post AG: 0,54 %
Fresenius SE & Co. KGaA: 0,51 %
Siemens Aktiengesellschaft: 0,70%
Allianz SE: 0,71 %
Münchener Rückversicherungs-Gesellschaft Aktiengesellschaft in München: 0,70 %
adidas AG: 0,61 %
BASF SE: 0,70 %
Bayer Aktiengesellschaft: 0,70 %
E.ON SE: 0,70 %
Daimler AG: 0,60 %

How large this positons are is more clear if traders check the "day to cover ratio":

What is 'Days To Cover':

Days to cover is a measurement of a company's issued shares that are currently shorted, expressed as the number of days required to close out all of the short positions and calculated by taking the number of shares that are currently shorted and dividing that amount by the average daily volume for the shares in question. For example, if a company has average daily volume of 1 million shares and 2 million shares are currently short sold, the shares have a cover rate of 2 days (2M/1M).


Deutsche Telekom AG: 1,93 Days to cover
SAP SE: 2,05 Days to cover
Deutsche Post AG: 3,6 (!) Days to cover
Fresenius: SE & Co. KGaA: 2,06 Days to cover
Siemens: 2, 01 Days to cover
Allianz SE: 1,9 Days to cover
Münchener Rückversicherungs-Gesellschaft Aktiengesellschaft in München: 2,07 Days to cover
adidas AG: 1,49 Days to cover
BASF SE: 2,75 Days to cover
Bayer Aktiengesellschaft: 2,34 Days to cover
E.ON SE: 1,18 Days to cover
Daimler AG: 1,11 Days to cover

To compare this to other net short positons: TESLA is shorted by 18 % of all stocks - but the day to cover ratio of this huge positons is actually just in a ragen between 2 to maximum 6 tradingdays (!).

If ever BRIDGEWATER is wrong about this idea to short the DAX than Europes Bellwether will raise dramatically. BRIDGEWATER is not only shorting the DAX . BRIDGEWATER is shorting also Italien Banks by 3 Billion Euro . BRIDGEWATER is the largest hedgefonds in the world. "Bridgewater manages about $150 billion in global investments for approximately 350 of the largest and most sophisticated institutional clients." Source:

If BRIDGEWATER is shorting the DAX and same time "the largest and most sophisticated institutional clients" having long positions in the DAX there are just two options:

a): BRIDGEWATER is bedding against own clients
b): Clients following Bridgewater and this could be close to manipulating the market.

Bridgewater opens its strategy to the public according to Italy on Boomberg TV: Published on February 1th 15.03 MEZ

But just a few hours ago bloomberg published this stunning interview on February 1th 05.00 MEZ:

The Italian Populist Movement 5MS ( dropped since January 2018 a major anti EU idea of a EURO Referendum. Also the 5MS vowed "to be open for a coalition to avoid any chaos in italy"

You will see all open shortpositions from BRIDGEWATER. They need to update this every trading day by German Law without any ecception. If shortpositions are reduced or closed Bridgewater needs to follow up on a daily basis.

Germany`s largest financial newspaper mentioning short positions from Bridgewater against Deutsche Bank - to promote his own premium feature - and talking about this like the daily weather report.

So what we see now is at latest coverage in another different major online news media, but always discussing a single DAX event only:

Same "smart" are all German major Financial Markets news sources:

This is from End of Oktober:

If you read one by one it is not so difficult to understand what BRIDGEWATER is doing in Europe. But until now nobody is bringing this story together. And no one is asking: Does it make sense to short massively a stockmarket in a Bull Market? This latest news sound like it is a fact, given by god, that someone is shorting something. But the Italy shorts are unlikely to be a success - means the largest hedgefonds in the world might loose (a lot?) of money there. And no one is asking about:

How are the Risks for BRIDGEWATER, if the Italian Election might be a success?

- The 5SM could build a coalition with the PD.
- Germany`s coalition talks likely to be a bigger success than anyone anticipated.
- The BREXIT could cause that Theresa May is forced to resign.

There are a lot of political surprises out there, wich could be dramatically positiv for the DAX. So how is the risk, if someone is shorting the DAX by a Day to Cover Rate of 2 full trading days (based on average volume past 30 trading days, source And finally:

I do not want to speculate about if and when. But fact is that if Berlusconis Health Problems might cause his death surprisingly than the election in Italy will end different from what Bridgewater is bedding against now.

Much different, folks.

BRIDGEWATER Risk/Reward Ratio:

Luigi Di Maio, leader of Italy’s anti-establishment Five Star Movement, wants to make it easier for the country’s ailing banks to recover assets, allowing them to maximize their returns. Italian banks have more than 270 billion euros ($336 billion) of non-performing loans.

Bridgewater has seen mixed results from its bets. Thirteen of its 20 shorts have lost money, with the shares rising over the last three months. Short sellers sell borrowed shares and buy them back at a lower price, pocketing the difference as profit.

Bridgewater is increasing its short bets on Italian equities despite the nation’s benchmark FTSE MIB index being the best performer among the largest European countries since the beginning of 2018. The FTSE Italia All-Share Banks Index has gained 13 percent this year.

The country’s banking system is stabilizing, while economic growth has been better than expected. Still, Italian lenders are weighed down by non-performing loans and European authorities are pressuring them to sell off the soured debt.

BRIDGEWATER Risk/Reward Ratio: DAX Kursindex (DAX without re invested Dividend payouts:

The chart is showing clearly that the German Stockmarket (DAX 30, "Kursindex", google the definition please) now is below the 2000 and 2015 highs even all fundamental indicators showing the highest growth rates since 17 years - in Europe and globaly. To short a whole stockmarket Index (more ore less) in valid Bull Market is quite unusual. BRIDGEWATER needs to have very high expectations that the DAX will drop deeper right now. If this high expectations are not fullfiled than BRIDGEWATER needs to buy back all shorted DAX stock same time the DAX is rising to new All Time High.

It's Dalio Versus Everyone Else as Money Flows to Europe

I’m surprised. That’s a big bet. Dalio and his team are very confident,” said Rick Herman, managing director of asset allocation who helps oversee about $30 billion at BB&T Institutional Investment Advisors Inc. “That’s definitely out of consensus. European stocks are cheaper, and they also have stronger earnings growth.”

„Investors staged a near-record exodus from US stocks in February

Funds that focus on U.S. stocks saw investors withdraw $41.1 billion in February, according to market data firm TrimTabs.
The total was the third-largest ever and came during a month when the Dow industrials lost about 4 %“
