John D. Markman at MSN Money on Victor Niederhoffer’s hedge fund blow-up of eight years ago. In the popular press Niederhoffer’s blow-up has been connected to the current Refco bankruptcy. Markman provides some background on Niederhoffer, and allows him to clear the air about the Refco connection (or lack thereof). The story for Niederhoffer is a happy one, in that he has been able to successfully re-institute his trading business. Worth a read.
