The Wall Street Journal reported on Saturday that Michael Novogratz recently decamped from Fortress Investment Group and shuttered his macro hedge fund amid turmoil in Brazil.
According to the publication, Novogratz lost about $100 million in the last two months alone, and came on the heels of a $150 million bath the fund took on a wrong bet placed on the Swiss franc.

IvanTulafitov : investment law will be voted on monday 19th - they go in usually 11 am their time to around 3ish so figure about 8am eastern tomorrow that should be done ... right on time for the RV (already in progress )
