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.

    Plenty are taking PM profits going into the end of the year, regardless of Paulson, who likely did hedge some of his holdings (sold plenty of rich upside GLD calls into Sept).

    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.
