Bloomberg reports that Goldman’s formerly $10 billion hedge fund, Global Alpha, is down 26%, following a decline last year of 9%.

It looks like a lot of Hedge Funds are running into trouble. It looks like their hedges are becoming unhedged. Previously negatively correlated bets are becoming positively correlated, and uncorrelated bets are becoming correlated.
I understand that this is because some of them have had forced sells
due to margin calls and to raise cash to try to be safe in the current deteriorating situation.
What’s going on?
