American hedge fund founder and money manager for George Soros said in an interview with Goldman Sachs Group, Inc. (NYSE:GS) that his particular set of skills are no longer needed. “Ten years ago, if the stock market had done what it has just done now, I could practically guarantee you that growth was going to accelerate.” Stan Druckenmiller said, “Now, it’s a possibility, but I would rather say that the market is rigged and people are chasing these assets, without growth necessarily backing confidence. It’s not predicting anything the way it used to and that really makes me reconsider my ability to generate superior returns. If the most important price in the most important economy in the world is being rigged, and everything else is priced off it, what am I supposed to read into other price movements?”

Hedge funds brace for renewed debt crisis (Reuters UK)
The euro zone’s debt crisis may be far from over, while Japan’s money-printing gamble to revive its economy could destabilise global markets if it doesn’t work, some hedge fund managers say. They are taking the view that the rally in financial markets over much of the past year, fuelled by central bank money printing, could mask a failure to tackle some European countries’ and banks’ debt problems, and the sell-off of recent weeks may be the start of a longer downward move. “(A Cyprus-style bailout) will probably happen somewhere in Europe again,” said Galia Velimukhametova, fund manager at GLG, part of hedge fund manager Man Group (EMG.L), at the GAIM conference in Monaco on Tuesday.
