Another hedgefund down

    Look at the charts at the open today. Many spikes up and down in many stocks with high volume (BBY for instance). It seems to be that someone was seeking alpha and found omega (his end).

    Market-neutral long/short hedgies have to sell instantly their longs if they are forbidden to have shorts. Their longs are financed by their shorts.

    In my opinion the charts show that some large hedgefunds were killed today...

    Waiting for news about this...
