In my global fascisim play of the day...

General Motors (GM) to buy remaining 40% stake in Polish engine plant

Congratulatons American taxpayers!  Rather than paying you back, GM is sending money to Pollocks.

I would rather that GM buy back the US Government's remaining stake in GM.  However...

GM CEO Dan Akerson says company committed to turning lossmaking European business around

"In Poland, even an old bald guy with just a little,
can still get a lot with your dollars!"

What part about BTFD don't they get? Now it's too late. Hope they're short.

I have been short since 11/2011. My face ripped off. This bicth will crash. Just a matter of time and margin calls. These fuckers are so over leveraged it will mke 2008 look like a correction.

I'm afraid I have to agree.  When you look at the fundamentals vs the mountain of debt being incurred and increased, added to the insurmountable problems of an EU that will most assuredly cause world-wide havoc, the 'crash' seems to only be getting more sure with every $85 billion the Bernank invests in this fools folly.  What kinda crash is this gonna be?  Can't say; only that it is going to be exceptional.

Do not underestimate the determination of these central bank f*ckers. They will risk the entire global financial system just to pay off their owners. Betting against them is unwise. The world is a big place, and the complex system can withstand lots pf pressures before it blows.

Look at the div paying stocks. The more the market tries to drop the bigger the boner they pop.

Agreed.  That should be telling for him and who knows how many others.

2 and 20, baby.  Imagine being in Paulson's fund, losing your ass (and continuing to lose your ass)..... all the while adding a 2% fee insult to your investment loss injury.  Ouch.

All these clowns are leveraged 25-1 at least I have no doubt, they'll all be completely wiped out one morning when there's a 3-4% drop, they're just Walkers.

Only a small handful of hedge funds use leverage ratios above 2.  The industry as a whole is very lightly levered if at all.  Many funds like Bridgewater don't use any leverage.  AQR, DE Shaw are very lightly levered between 1.5 and 3.  I really don't know what's going on at Citadel.

You still need to ask that question?  The good ones trade on insider information, the bad ones claim they are acting as a non-correlated investment for your overall portfolio (something that only goes down is non-correlated).

You don't understand- somebody has to pay them or they can't afford their lifestyle.  It's not all about YOU.  It's about THEM.  So think of somebody else's needs every now and then, you selfish bastard!  ;)

Looks like the old time macro guys are catching all the right moves, probably riding oil, JPY and PMs down.  Bruce Kovner, Louis Bacon and Paul Jones all near the top.  Loeb's on a roll, too.
