(Bloomberg Gadfly) -- Good morning! This is Fly Charts, the daily charts-only newsletter from Gadfly; sign up here. From oil hedging to Honeywell's low bar, here are four charts that tell you what you need to know in business today.
But don't miss Stephen Gandel on a surprising hedge fund boom: "... while a number of hedge fund managers seem to be facing an existential crisis, the industry isn't. Despite recent disappointing returns, the amount of money invested in hedge funds is up again this year, though well off from the boom times of the early 2000s. And the number of hedge funds actually rose in the third quarter for the first time in two years. What's more, despite news of closures, there are still 9,730 hedge funds, according to HFR, not too far below the all-time peak of 10,142 hit back in 2014."
