Andurand closed the year up as others in the industry struggled with oil swinging between the $40s and $60s last year and U.S. crude production skyrocketing to records. Andy Hall, the trader known as "God", shut his flagship Astenbeck Master Commodities Fund II Ltd. in August after it lost almost 30 percent of its value in the first half. Hall said algorithmic trading was making investing on market fundamentals "challenging" and he warned of a deteriorating outlook for crude.
Pierre Andurand, one of the most bullish oil hedge fund managers, gained 2.2 percent last year after a strong December performance allowed his eponymous fund to recover from months of losses, according to people familiar with the matter. The oil-focused Andurand Capital Management LLP’s gain transpired as the price of global benchmark Brent crude ended the year up 18 percent, while its U.S. counterpart closed out 2017 with a 12 percent gain.
Michael Gelband, the former head of credit at Millennium Management, will start his long-anticipated hedge fund in the next six months after resolving a hiring dispute with billionaire Izzy Englander. Gelband, who was once seen as Englander’s heir apparent at Millennium and who quit last January, will lead the new firm, ExodusPoint Capital Management, according to a person familiar with the company’s structure.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
