Ray Dalio's Bridgewater Doubles Short Positions Against European Stocks
Bridgewater Associates is short against 28 European stocks resulting in $10.5B in short positions. Its most bearish stance against the region's stocks in two years. However, it is unknown whether Bridgewater’s shorts are outright bets against the stocks, or part of a hedge.

Dalio’s firm is generally bearish on the global economy and has already positioned itself against sell-offs in US Treasuries, US equities and both US and European corporate bonds.

Big bet, I wonder if they expect everything to fall and Europe to be at the center of the selloff, or if they expect just Europe to fall and the US to hold on.

Such a good idea. Surprised of the position sizing though
