Anyone seen detailed analysis of what happened in the financial markets in mid-March 2020? And how things were turned around? It sure seems like there was a trend toward everything freezing up, with across-the-board correlations. I recall we had a similar situation in 2008, when we were on the brink of disaster (the cause was different, but the systemic fragility would seem to be the same).
I'm looking for something along the lines of white papers or academic papers, versus a speculative, sensational media article.
On a related note, I'm wondering if equity long-short hedge fund strategies worked at all (the variety that Quantopian was trying to get off the ground)? Of course, if leveraged by many multiples, then if the slightest thing is off, you are screwed.
