Short Version: Bonds downgraded force selloff into weak market, hedge funds buy at pennies on the dollar and profit weeks later.
Am I just being a pessimist/conspiracy theorist when I read a story like this and immediately think that back channel deals/info wasn't involved? "hey if you guys downgrade this stuff, it'll be like shooting fish in a barrel". Maybe this type of thing happens all the time but I'm just more observant these days of market manipulation.
Just thought I'd share. Thought it was kind of interesting.
a good day to all.
