We saw this weird tweet go out this morning about PTJ calling a top.
It started with Doug Kass, who tweeted:
i am hearing that hedgehogger paul tudor jones is calling for a rally in bonds and a sell off in stock now $$
It got re-tweeted like mad and now Zerohedge has noted that the market looks like Bernanke just said he thought the dollar hit a bottom.
We’ve reached out to the fund for comment.
Zerohedge heard from Tudor’s PR firm that:
“Paul Tudor Jones did not issue report on S&P500 or bonds, according to Abernathy MacGregor, public relations firm representing Tudor Jones.”
FWIW, here’s some interesting twitter commentary about the rumour:
@fundmyfunds: Paul Tudor Jones – aka Anti Tepper
@stockmarket_kid: Kass seems to be squeezed, sweating to cover! Now he’s pushing rumour of Paul Tudor Jones. get everyone to sell. Love it.
also @stockmarket_kid: @jimcramer Can’t Kass go back to making money the “fair” way? without cheating and spreading rumours to create panic? Ruining his legacy!
@zortrades: rumour that Paul Tudor Jones is calling a top, all we need is Tony Robbins to relay that message..
also @zortrades: if that Paul Tudor Jones call is true. tony robbins needs to double up
