    10:26 Moody's sees possibility of major hedge fund collapse, says big hedge fund collapse could disrupt markets - DJ
     
  2. "Sees possibility of collapse" or "Hedge fund did collapse"?
     
  3. Judging by this price action, we undoubtedly will see some news of collapses. I think the 'collapse' may have happened in the last two days.

    Seeing every world carry trade unwind like this (nzd, jpy, aud) with a simultaenous forced liquidation is something.
     
  4. The same Moody's that saw the crisis coming via their rating changes (NOT).
     
  5. If it is just 1 major hedge fund, I would be surprised. I know several hedge funds, most of them "minor", that are down over 50% ytd.
     
  6. GBPJPY dropped 500 overnight. Rumors that a large fund focused on Asia went down to the tune of $6B.
     
  7. could collapse, big surprise. I just saved you the $900 cost of the press conference.
