    If anyone wants to know what Ray Dalio thinks next week, be sure to tune in to the Max Kaiser show on RT news today... Ray consistently repeats everything Max says, (a strange 'coincidence' to see how that poser Ray Dalio always thinks the exact same thought Max Kaiser shared on RT news a week before.)

    It’s put options.. it’s more like insurance Incase the market goes down. He’s spending 1% of his net wealth in management to save it Incase the market drops 50%. That’s not a bet that the market is going down. It’s insurance Incase it goes down. Very different. Everyone buys insurance.. even billionaires.

    All you Paper Money Millionaires your paper money is on life support along with the stock market that the Federal Reserve keeps pumping up with quantitative easing and rate cuts and you Paper Money Millionaires are going to find out that the financial crisis of 2008 is going to finish what it started no more bailouts just ask automobile companies haha your paper money is on life support but my gold and silver show ain't and you're going to see historical levels in gold and silver because that paper fiat currency is done just ask Venezuela 1 oz of silver the people are eating for three months paper money they are starving and it's coming to America believe that

    Recession or stock market collapse/ correction is a real concern to Ray Dalio--small hedge (1.5/150) relatively or otherwise. It's significant for him to spend $1.5b; he's not doing this everyday. On relativity, $1.5b on a single-idea bet (i.e. stock index will fall) is akin to betting 1.5b on say, a company. If he ever does that, or does that regularly, then this WSJ headline is sensationalizing; else, it's not entirely so.

    That stock market is on life support it's so far detached from reality it ain't funny I invest in gold and silver and you should too because when a stock market fails and your paper fiat currency is no good no gold no silver I do believe that you will bleed and bleed bad

    Dalio made a brilliant bet so you better print some more to pay him off.
    Derivatives are a tax deductable, and because it's speculative, they get paid before depositers do.
    If dalio sold off at a high, he could start a drop through automatic algorithm sell levels, win his bet, and buy the cheaper shares. The rich get richer .
