Hedge-Fund Billionaire Ray Dalio Says Don’t Let Beijing’s Regulatory Actions Scare You Away from Investing in Chinese Stocks (Business Insider)
Billionaire investor Ray Dalio said he isn’t fazed by Beijing’s regulatory crackdown affecting stocks of technology companies such as Didi, arguing the government’s moves don’t signal a reversal of longstanding policy trends. He defended China’s recent move to increase its grip on collection and use of data from all corners of the technology sector. Some Chinese stocks have logged their steepest declines in 2021 in the wake of the government’s clampdown.

Tuttle Capital Management’s Anti-ARK Fund Is Hardly Impressive (Real Money)
It’s interesting to see a fund go out with an anti-ARK fund. Yes, there’s been a filing by Tuttle Capital Management to track the inverse performance of the Ark Innovation ETF (ARKK) . In a market where shorting has been hunted down like wild, rabid animals, some folks have to think this move is crazy. Surely, the Short ARKK ETF (SARK) will be squeezed, but it may not be that simple. SARK will operate via swap contracts, which is the approach used by most inverse funds on the market. That means someone, somewhere will likely be short some of the ARKK holdings. However, it may be spread across many institutions, and in some cases simply be a hedge against an existing long position for them. In short, no pun intended, any “squeeze” will be more psychological than forced as I see it.
