You are right - Fund Managers have not invented the market. They only bring products (game) to the market. The purpose of the product is to make money for the Fund Managers and not necessarily to the investors (players). Investors (players) get profit(loss) from each-other and never from Fund Managers. What is my intention? To help all of us to understand what this is all about so there is no mistaking what the outcome will be.

The thing is, fund managers have not invented the market (what you call the game).

Matthias Knab Posted On Mar 01 2013

Well, if my analogy of stock-market and Las-Vegas is not to some-one to liking,then, we can go to the good-old fairs where children are invited win a price by throwing some thing or the other at a fixed target. A game is a game, whose purpose is to enrich the inventor. The losers are the people who take-up the challenge not the professors, the quants or the industry that will spring-around that game. Of course, any game inventor will adopt it to the needs of the hour, but, the result will always be the same, lining the pockets of the creators of the hedge-fund and not the investors/players.

Interesting discussion is going on here.. my 2 cents are that we are covering hedge fund managers in our Opalesque.TV series. It has not been my experience covering hedge fund managers for 10 years now that this crowd cannot be compared to Vegas-type gamblers. We are also not talking about "playing the stock market", many of the funds we cover have a very disciplined approach. You see it here too in this video. Three of the co-founders are quants. Jasper is a trained engineer, has Ph.D., teaches Finance at an university. No strategy works forever of course, but the quants will be among the first to know and will then strive again to use their tools to be among the first to adapt to the new market pattern.

95% or even more that play the stock-market or go to Las Vegas are losers; either they do not recognize it or do it as a habit. This is not any different from smoking or any other vice. No, - not everyone is doing it; just those that are gullible or easily conned.

Bizarre argument, who would be interested to swap a loss...? And if someone would swap losses as you say, does that mean everyone is doing it?

anonymous Posted On Feb 28 2013

The arbitrary "theoretical" value computed, has no relevance to reality and can only provide volatility to trade with/against. After the fund managers collect their wages, the players can swap their losses till the players get tired of that game. Good Las-Vegas model,indeed. No one wonder, it's performance is better than the comparable.
