Bloomberg Pronounces The Early Death Of The Traditional Long-Short Hedge Fund Model

Bloomberg has apparently just taken it upon itself to pronounce the early, unceremonious demise of the traditional Long/Short Hedge Fund model after seemingly declaring that stocks will continue to march higher in perpetuity, with minimal volatility, thus rendering traditional financial analysis and stock picking about as obsolete as a Motorola pager from 1982.  Of course, […]

Blackmailing German Bomber Demands 10 Million Euros In Bitcoin From DHL

Stockman Slams “The Awesome Recovery” Narrative
