2nd Warning On BRIDGEWATERS 20 bn USD "Big Short"

MIL:FTSEMIB   FTSE MIB Index
Story 1: January 23rd, 2018

Quote: "The hedge fund manager (Ray Dalio) said on Jan. 23 in an interview with CNBC that investors will see "a market blowoff" rally fueled by a flood of cash. "If you're holding cash, you're going to feel pretty stupid," he said.

Dalio founded Bridgewater Associates in 1975. The hedge fund now manages about $160 billion, according to its website. Bridgewater also has the biggest cumulative net profit for a hedge fund firm ever, according to data from LCH Investments. From inception to 2017, Dalio's firm posted a nearly $50 billion gain for its investors, the data showed.

BRIDGEWATER vs. DAX: DAY TO COVER RATIO ON DAX HEAVY WEIGHTED STOCKS (average 30 days) :


Deutsche Telekom AG: 1,93 Days to cover
SAP SE: 2,05 Days to cover
DEUTSCHE BANK AKTIENGESELLSCHAFT: 2,07 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 range between 2 to maximum 6 tradingdays (!). http://www.nasdaq.com/symbol/tsla/short-...

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: https://www.bridgewater.com/

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.

Ray Dalio: 'Risks of a recession' are rising

Bridgewater Associates founder Ray Dalio says in a LinkedIn blog post that the Federal Reserve's response to better-than-expected economic data and more fiscal spending may lead to an economic slowdown. "What we do know is that we are in the part of the cycle in which the central banks' getting monetary policy right is difficult and that this time around the balancing act will be especially difficult," he writes. The firm manages about $160 billion, according to its website." https://www.cnbc.com/2018/02/12/ray-dali...

Trade ist aktiv: TODAYS UNTOLD BRIDGEWATER STORY:


BRIDGEWATER IS REDUCEING NET SHORT POSITONS.

google: "federal gazzette netto short".

Bridgewater is reducing shorts. But guess how:

1. Selling short positions: Aggressive by high numbers
2. Buying back: "silently, by lower numbers".


So what does this mean?

If you sell high numbers of stocks than you know that you move the markets. If you by small numbers of stocks you try to avoid to move the markets to the upside.

For sure you dont expect shortterm lower stockmarket prices - otherwise you don´t buy back.

The question is:

a) How fast the DAX and all shorted stocks might go up now?
b) At waht point BRIDGEWATER might be forced to increase to buy back short positions?
c) Will this effect the markets going up or to spike to the up side?

Remind: Bridgwater size of shortpositions in DAX heavy weights is still muliple full day turnover.

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.”
https://www.bloombergquint.com/markets/2...
Trade ist aktiv: Just to compare: US-Investors sold assets for 41 Bn USD in a full month. BRIDGEWATER sold stocks for at least 22 Bn USD just within a few days only. Same time Europe’s Stockmarket is much smaller than the US Stockmarket.

„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 %“ https://www.cnbc.com/2018/03/06/investor...

@AnRuaN, thx. Its also in the news that the "big short" is now 22 bn and not 12 or 14 like widely anticipated. I emailed this to Daniel Ivandjiiski (Zerohedge since I guess Saturday maybe 3 or 4 times that numbers are much to low. Good that Zerohedge now is bringing the right numbers.

@SwissView, thanks for the info, interesting opinions. I think the short VIX trade had to blow up eventually, that trade was so crowded. The manipulation thesis seems not unlikely at all, i read Peter Thiel also made good money on that VIX spike, you already mentioned Marshall Wace, maybe some more big names teamed up.
Really looking forward on how this plays out after italy election, Europe definitely lagging US thus far.
