Morgan Stanley pulls the plug on John Paulson, its Wealth Management Division recommending clients sell 6 his funds after 2 years of horrid performance. Paulson is a major holder of GLD, and surely knew the liquidations were coming. Might this have something to do with the recent sell off in the metal, asks ZH.

  • I remember a Pat Paulson who ran for Pres. Hmmm...who knows they could all be from the same clan. Pat seemed to make the most sense of all of them. Scary.
