    Ray Dalio says the world is in a ‘great sag’ and echoes the 1930s

    KEY POINTS

    Hedge fund titan Ray Dalio believes it is too late for central banks to reverse a global slowdown.

    Dalio is warning that current conditions remind him of the Depression-era environment.

    He says the world is currently entering a “great sag” as the natural cycle of growth ends.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    “This cycle is fading, we are now in the world in what I would call a ‘great sag’,” said Dalio, adding that monetary policy, and especially interest rate reductions, were unlikely to offer much stimulus.

    “Europe is at the limitation of that, Japan is (too) and the U.S. doesn’t have much to go on for that,” he told CNBC’s Geoff Cutmore.

    World’s largest hedge fund reportedly bets over $1 billion on a big stock market sell-off soon

    KEY POINTS

    The reported wager placed by Ray Dalio’s Bridgewater Associates would pay off for the firm if either the S&P 500 or the Euro Stoxx 50 (or both) decline.

    The Wall Street Journal report says the bet uses put options assembled over months by Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley.

    “We have no positions that are intended to either hedge or bet on any potential political developments in the U.S.,” Bridgewater tells CNBC.

    The firm paid about $1.5 billion for the contracts, about 1% of Bridgewater’s $150 billion in total assets under management, the report said.

    They make it sound like a huge position ("over $1 billion") but that's just 1% of their assets.

    Just as I suspected... Dalio's Hedge Fund corrects the WSJ assertion that it is a major bearish call. A 1% position is not a major bet on anything.


    Head of the world’s largest hedge fund says report of a massive $1 billion bet that the stock market will tumble by March is wrong

    Dalio Tweet:
    The Wall Street Journal wrote an article that said “Bridgewater Bets Big on Market Drop.” It’s wrong. I want to make clear that we don’t have any such net bet that the stock market will fall.

    Ray Dalio thinks the coronavirus’ hit to global markets is probably exaggerated

    The fast-spreading virus, which has so far killed 1,018 people and sickened more than 43,000 across 28 countries, “probably had a bit of an exaggerated effect on the pricing of assets,” the billionaire hedge fund manager told a panel audience on Tuesday.

    Some Wall Street bulls say they fear the virus could lead to a stock market correction and that it currently poses the single biggest threat the market’s rally.
