Soros Short Bets Big Against US

I'm not copying the cnn article in case there are copyright issues, but the headline was he bets big with a $430 million short bet.

The article also says his net worth is $25 billion.

 

How the hell is 2% a "big" bet?

Sounds like a almost zero conviction bet to me.

 

I guess I'm getting cranky as I get older, but how the hell do these articles get written?

I guess they got me to click and that is all that matters.

Who cares about quality of writing now?

Good article on the "Soros put" story: http://www.bloomberg.com/view/articles/2016-05-25/kick-the-click-bait-habit .

 

So please folks, don’t encourage this foolishness by giving in to the temptation to click on every salacious, but misleading, headline you see. You will only encourage them.

 

I would add: please don't encourage this foolishness by reposting said stories on this forum.

Thanks so much. I clicked your link... and then clicked another 10 links in the Bloomberg link list.  :-\ Another hour wasted...  :'( Why did you do it?  :'(
