Kass: 15 Surprises for 2011

With the depth of the investigations moving toward the center of some of the largest hedge and mutual funds, many of the more active traders are temporarily in "lockdown" mode as the hedge fund community's trading activity freezes up.

  • New York Stock Exchange volume and price volatility dry up (see surprise No. 4 on the sideways market).
  • Fox Business Network closes because of lack of interest.
  • CNBC reduces its live broadcasting schedule and resorts to paid programming before 6 a.m. and after 8 p.m.
  • Particularly hard-hit is Greenwich, Connecticut -- the home of many of the biggest hedge-hoggers who are alleged to have committed insider trading violations. The residential real estate market in Greenwich collapses.

14. There is a peaceful regime change in Iran.

15. China overplays its economic hand by implementing multiple tightening and by its unwillingness to allow its currency to appreciate.

The region's GDP climbs by only 5% in 2011.
