J Kyle Bass recommends that investors stay in cash

Investors should be more in cash. To the extent that he is right about the order of debt events, the USD will be strong short to medium term and EUR and JPY will be weak.

Kyle Bass, an American hedge fund manager, is the Founder of Hayman Capital. He received extensive coverage in the financial press for profiting $590 million by short selling the sub-prime mortgage bond market, before that market crashed. In 2011, Bass initiated a huge position in Greek sovereign debt through CDSs. Media reports were that he could profit up to 650 times his investment should Greece default on its debt obligations.
