The Incredible Shrinking Hedge Fund

These charts will convince you that the hedge fund industry is definitely shrinking. I would even think the though of starting one is even dead. Here are some highlights you should check out:

With inflows stagnant, the number of new firms has plummeted.

Overall, firms’ assets are barely growing. Net inflows since the end of 2016 have equaled just $7.8 billion.

Then you should see the how the legends have shrunk.

Ken Griffin’s $30B hedge fund has out performance vs industry this year

If you looked at these crummy returns, you would think this performance from the big dogs of the hedge fund industry is sort of sad. I am not an expert here but I am hoping to get my trading daily goals will be at least 0.5% psotive moves against my portfolio. However, when you have the most intelligent industry managers with such low performance, it make me wonder who are they to attack the crypto currency asset class space? I do see daily tiny opportunities to make the goals I would like to achieve. See this CNBC article here:

Who do you think it should be? Let me know by responding!

What am I gong to do about it?

As for me, I am making some great strides in this overall strategy:

1. I included a video on how I am able triple expected returns via portfolio optimization.

2. I am working on how to optimally enter and exit the crypto currency exchanges for multiple positions.

3. Use risk management techniques to help protect your account against down market days. Imagine if you were able to do the opposite by maximizing when the markets are constantly up?

Airbnb internal hedge fund that makes $5M per month?

Airbnb internal hedge fund that makes $5M per month?

So an internal hedge fund recuses the cash flow of this startup barely making any profit. Here are some article highlights:

The side project represented 30 percent of the company’s cash flow last year and made about $5 million a month for Airbnb,…

Airbnb’s earnings before interest, taxes, and other expenses came to $93 million, more than double the company’s …

 Bloomberg’s sources are correct, then as much as $60 million of that may have come from Tosi’s hedge fund. Investing a company’s cash isn’t unusual.

As for my strategy and recent videos I have posted on technical indicators, I am thinking of scrapping it to work on a new more efficient one for better tracking potential forex opportunities. Keeps your eyes peeled on this.

Thanks Bryan

RenTech HFT Hedge Fund Sees ‘Significant’ Risk of Correction

RenTech HFT Hedge Fund Sees ‘Significant’ Risk of Correction

Here is some quotes on this forecast:

“However, with higher rates and more volatility a distinct possibility, there is a significant risk that asset prices will correct,” he said.

“While the fear of missing out may not be a concern for equity investors, increasing euphoria mixed with a bit of complacency certainly is,” he said. “Historically low levels of volatility may well have given investors a false sense of security in the nearly two years since the last market correction.”

“Who is going to buy the paper the Federal Reserve accumulated during the years of quantitative easing? If the Chinese reassess their appetite for U.S. debt, rates will have to move up to finance the projected $700 billion U.S. deficit this year,” he said.

“While we cannot know when that will happen with the current markets, we are doing our best to prepare for what may be turbulence ahead,” he wrote.

Does MIFID II prevent small hedge fund taking external capital

Here was a user comment on this video
Very interesting legal development. One guy from a European bank’s ER said that the ER departments in many institutions are going to shut down, because they don’t expect the clients will pay for their sell-side research. We are witnessing a huge reshape of the current S&T business model at sell-side financial firms.
Thanks for reading
