That's surprising. Most vol arb groups are usually selling vol. Quite a few of them blew up.

Credit shops all over the place, seen some good but those are from books running closer to neutral. Structured credit is harder to tell as cash structured products haven't seen a ton of volume so price discovery has been difficult and have been using the liquid securities/benchmarks as proxies which have sold off strong. I think marks will be very ugly in the CLO space once they get a grasp on marks, could see some junior tranches get taken out.

PE firms using this weakness to buy distressed assets are killing it

my banker friends have been inundated with calls from PE funds looking to buy, with billions and billions of cash on hand.

Warren Buffet will use his 120bln cash pile to buy the dip

This. Going to see a lot companies with a need to raise equity in order to survive and sponsors are itching to put money to work since they are flush with cash

I heard all the long only guys are killing it.

Remember, the grass is always greener on the otherside because it's fertilized with bullshit.
