Bridgewater's Culture Of "Probing" - Sex Scandal Strikes World's Largest Hedge Fund

Employee files sexual harrassment complaint where Bridgewater is described as a  “cauldron of fear and intimidation" where employees are exposed to constant video surveillance and encounters with patrolling security guards that "silence" employees who do not fit the Bridgewater mold.

FBI Director Comey Explains His "Surprising & Confusing" Decision To The House - Live Feed

Having stunned even the most liberal of liberal media outlets with his seemingly unexplainable decision not to bring charges against Hillary Clinton (thus nullifying six criminal laws), FBI Director Jim Comey faces an oversight bloodbath today in front of the House Oversight Committee.

"I want to just convey to investors, I think in the average investor, most everybody, do not compete against pros like ourselves or other people; do not making tactical asset allocation bets or moving around in the markets, because you will probably lose....
