Man who broke Bank of England increases bet against US stock market - reference Telegraph

The man dubbed "the man who broke the Bank of England" for his $10bn bet against sterling in the 1990s, has now taken out a $2.2bn bet that the S&P 500 will fall, according to a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission. This takes Soros Fund Management's short position on the index from 3pc of his portfolio to 17pc. Mr Soros's net position on the index remains long. The filing also revealed that Mr Soros increased his stake in Argentina's state-owned oil company YPF by 8.5 million shares. Argentina's long-running dispute with a group of bondholders culminated in it defaulting on its debt for the second time in 13 years.

Similarities between George Clooney and Mark Carney have often been noted, and the Canadian's latest avoidance tactics when it comes to commitment would no doubt get George's seal of approval. Bovis Homes has posted impressive first-half figures as the UK house builder has seen its pre-tax profits jump by 166%, but this good mood might be short-lived with Rightmoves House Price Index out this morning showing a monthly fall of 2.9%. The insurance firm Amlin has seen profits collapse, as the cost of numerous global disasters has eaten into its returns. The impressive turn around in Wall Street's performance on Friday has carried over the weekend and helped European markets start the week in a buoyant mood. Wall Street is once again coming up to tackle technical resistance but, with the momentum built up over the last week, conversations are likely to turn towards when, not if, it can tackle the 17,000 level again. Ahead of the open we expect the Dow Jones to start 79 points higher at 16,741. http://www.ig.com/uk/market-update/2014/08/18/european-equities-see-strong-start-to-week-18679
