Prisoner shackle with word "debt" on the iron ball, concept of escaping debt and dependency on credit. Isolated on white background.

Stocks actually rose last week, although you'd be hard-pressed to find an investor or hedge fund manager who is feeling good about things right now.

The Nasdaq Composite Index, home of the FANGS, added 2.3% to close at 4591.18. But as the title of the novel goes, it's "been down so long it looks like up to me."

All three markets are still down sharply on the year and many hedge funds are nursing double digit losses just three weeks into the year.
