“Soros Put” Hits Record As Billionaire’s Downside Hedge Rises By 154% in Q4 To $1.3 Billion | Zero Hedge

Probably less to this than it appears.  This put is four years old by now, and as a percentage of Soros’s total holdings, it’s actually fallen from last year.

I wouldn’t jump out the window yet.  Soros knows that hot-air bubbles eventually cool and deflate, and he’s doing what any good prepper would – preparing for the worst.  Although I doubt he’s actually hoping for the best.  He’s a vulture, and makes his money off the worst in all its forms – especially if he can create them himself.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.

    That’s what pisses me off about all the newsies and blabbers “reporting” Soros’s gamble as a sign that We’re All Doomed™. He’s influencing the market that he’s betting in, and the blabbers are helping him even while criticizing him.
