This is all according to rumors found on Bloomberg TV. I find it interesting with all the technology and algos in the world, hedge funds performance is very lackluster his year.  As Bloomberg says, I do think you will see the shrinking of this cottage industry with big firms. All the early innovators like Jim SImmons are retiring, it seems the institutional players will shrink or maybe even close. I do think the automated algos and systems will continue but by the little guys. There is still lots of growth ahead.

I have been known to be the worst typist. Do not be offended by it as I like to bang stuff out and put priorty of what I do over typing. Maybe one day I can get a full time copy editor to help out.
