Another Hedge Fund Scam

Hedge funds are back in the news. The destructive rip-offs are now allowing anyone to self-destruct through “alternative funds” for the masses disguised as mutual funds. Most make their computer generated paper money buying shares then selling short as stocks prices fall – remember they bet on them either going up or down: And as you know, they control that movement by selling large batches to get it moving down and then other computers kick in when they reach their down limits – guaranteeing it falls further.
