Ray Dalio's hedge fund has bet more than $1 billion that global stocks will tumble by March, WSJ says


I find this kind of thing pretty interesting. For some investment entity to bet $1 billion that certain stock market scenarios will decline in a certain time line (from what I understand , these are termed as "put options") is kind of interesting. It's a pretty big gamble and loss if it doesn't happen.

I'm reminded of the many "put options" before 9/11 where specific corporations stockes would lose value in a certain time schedule .... certain companies which had offices in the WOrld rade centre buildings.
