Paul Tudor Jones
He first gained widespread notoriety for being the subject of the PBS special called TRADER: The Documentary about hedge funds on Wall Street. In the film he is clearly seen predicting the 1987 Black Monday event. Jones' short bets paid off handsomely tripling the size of his money from that event. Jones was later so displeased by having so much of his fund's inner working on display that he later got the documentary taken out of circulation.
Jones will trade virtually any asset class and equities usually only represent a small portion of what Tudor Investment Corp has at any one time.
