Please don't bash me, I am really curious: Hedge Funds short stocks, right? If so, shouldn't they make tons of profit when market fall 50%? I don't get it, where the hell all the money goes too? Some firms out there must make a lot of money. Why everyone is losing money, including shorting experts-Hedge Funds. Why Hedge Fund blew up & deleveraging? Shouldn't they make billions shorting the market? Why they face margin calls & forced liquidations? Where all the loss of 3 trillions goes to? Someone lost then some must make tons too for every trade, right? Why I can't even find one news about any Hedge Fund firms making billions shorting market? What is going on here? (Yes, I do know not every Hedge Fund is the same). Please don't tell me only daytraders in this forum make all the money either...lol.
