It seems legendary hedge fund billionaire George Soros might be souring in his view view on the market outlook for US stocks, based on his most recent 13-F filing in the US which showed a 605% increase in his short S&P 500 position (through a PUT on the SPDR S&P 500 ETF) to $US2.2 billion.
Even though he is still net long stocks, this took the short position (where he owns an option which will profit from a fall in stocks prices) on the S&P 500 from 2.96% of his Soros Funds Management Portfolio to a whopping 16.65%. (Hat tip to @BullionBarron for the heads-up.)
