In light of the BoJ action and the CNY weakening the WSJ offers the following:

"Some of the biggest names in the hedge-fund industry are piling up bets against China’s currency, setting up a showdown between Wall Street and the leaders of the world’s second-largest economy.

Kyle Bass’s Hayman Capital Management has sold off the bulk of its investments in stocks, commodities and bonds so it can focus on shorting Asian currencies, including the yuan and the Hong Kong dollar.

It is the biggest concentrated wager that the Dallas-based firm has made since its profitable bet years ago against the U.S. housing market. About 85% of Hayman Capital’s portfolio is now invested in trades that are expected to pay off if the yuan and Hong Kong dollar depreciate over the next three years—a bet with billions of dollars on the line, including borrowed money.

“When you talk about orders of magnitude, this is much larger than the subprime crisis,” said Mr. Bass, who believes the yuan could fall as much as 40% in that period.

Billionaire trader Stanley Druckenmiller and hedge-fund manager David Tepper have staked out positions of their own against the currency, also known as the renminbi, according to people familiar with the matter. David Einhorn’s Greenlight Capital Inc. holds options on the yuan depreciating.

The funds’ bets come at a time of enormous sensitivity for China’s leaders. The government is struggling on multiple fronts to manage a soft landing for the economy, deal with a heavily indebted banking system and navigate the transition to consumer-led growth.

Expectations for a weaker yuan have led to an exodus of capital by Chinese residents and foreign investors. Though it still boasts the largest holding of foreign reserves at $3.3 trillion, China has experienced huge outflows in recent months. Hedge funds are gambling that China will let its currency weaken further in a bid to halt a flood of money leaving the country and jump-start economic growth.

The effort is a lot riskier, though, than taking on a currency whose value is set by the market. China’s state-run economy gives the government a number of levers to pull and tremendous resources at its disposal. Earlier this year, state institutions bought up so much yuan in the Hong Kong market where foreigners place most of their bets that overnight borrowing costs shot up to 66%, making it difficult to finance short positions and sending the yuan up sharply.

The situation grew more tense after billionaire investor George Soros predicted at the World Economic Forum gathering in Davos, Switzerland, recently that “a hard landing is practically unavoidable” for China’s economy. He said he is betting against commodity-producing countries and Asian currencies as a result."

It will be interesting if there is a Eugene McCarthy moment in NH -- Warren may not understand that most of this "corruption" is a product of the idiotic tax code

The problem is that if we eliminate complexity in taxes (all regulation is a tax) we eliminate about 30% of the jobs in the US

Barclays and Credit Suisse are two of the largest operators of dark pools, which are private electronic trading sites where buyers and sellers are supposed to be able to make transactions without the interference of high-speed traders. Mr. Schneiderman filed suit against Barclays in 2014, saying that its dark pool actually welcomed high-speed traders rather than kept them out.

Barclays told clients of its dark pool, Barclays LX, that it monitored for high-speed trading activities on the site, but it did not. It also favored high-speed traders on the platform.

Mr. Schneiderman said Credit Suisse also made its dark pool a priority by sending it trade orders instead of sending them to other trading sites. It secretly allowed two high-speed trading firms to trade directly with its other customer orders through an undisclosed order matching platform. It did not fully disclose that it transmitted confidential client information outside its dark pool, he said.


Which begs the Question. WHICH 2 HFT were favored??????????

Maybe the publically traded firm that Never Had a Losing Day....never ever never ever??????

Understand this the gov't will NEVER fight a case in Court that it has less than an 80% chance of winning - it would have to appeal on law not facts // push'em and they'll settle --- CHEAP
