"Start with hedge funds. After missing a generational rally in which the Standard & Poor's 500 Index tripled, hedge funds finally began going long U.S. equities -- just before the China trap door swung open. The Wall Street Journal reported that many funds got shellacked this month, giving up all of their year-to-date gains in a week. "

I'm sure they'll fine someway to pass their losses onto the taxpayer, so the final joke will still end up on us. Unless you FIRE'd and don't pay taxes anymore, lol.

If you read the financial "news" you always get stories about the single hedge fund that just made a billion dollars in a week or whatever. They don't contrast it with the billions lost by the other hedge funds in the same timeframe.

Well there's my problem. The "if" portion of the statement seems to fly past me.
