Hedge Fund Manager Odey Turns Super Bear on QE (Wall Street Journal)
Renowned U.K. hedge fund manager Crispin Odey has warned of an impending global economic slowdown that will be remembered for a century, saying equity markets will be “devastated” despite central bank action aimed at propping up the global economy. “The shorting opportunity looks as great as it was in 07/09”, the founder of Odey Asset Management wrote in his latest report to investors, seen by MoneyBeat. “We used all our monetary firepower to avoid the first downturn in 2007-09, so we are really at a dangerous point to try to counter the effects of a slowing China, falling commodities and EM incomes,” he wrote.
