    Real Vision Exchange Survey Week 7/2021: Results
    Results of last week's survey are in.

So, first week for commodities and they already make up 12% in the RealVision Exchange portfolio. What a start!  GO TO THE DASHBOARD FOR INTERACTIVE WIZARDRY Executive Summary 1.

    2Q Conversations with Greg Zuckerman
    @Moritz Seibert and I decided to launch a dedicated video channel: 2Q Conversations. We have a passion for speaking with, and learning from, interesting people. Interesting because they are bright minds, smart traders, experts in their fields of business, or simply because they hold uncommon or unique views. And you know, it’s even more interesting when these views challenge our own views.  We want to have conversations only with great people, and only about great topics. Our guests tend to be…

    Irresponsibly long local German exchanges and market makers
    As desribe in our 2Q Focus for February, I'm long specific German exchanges and market makers that are listed on Xetra. These exchanges are getting a large proportion of the retail order flow of the German equivalents to Robinhood. Two examples I also mentioned in the report are Baader Bank (a bankd and market maker at Gettex exchange in Munich) and Lang & Schwarz (market maker at LS Exchange, the electronic trading platform of Hamburg exchange). Both companies are closely connected to neo…

    The Growth Show - The Journey and Vision with Raoul
    I had never seen this show before but it is really similar to NPR's "How I Built This", which is a podcast that digs into how entrepreneurs think and grow their businesses. Raoul tweeted this out but I thought I would share with everyone on here who didn't see.

    HOWARD MARKS & JOEL GREENBLATT: IS IT DIFFERENT THIS TIME?
    Marks contends that the current investor optimism is largely a man-made artifact of monetary policy in order to stave off an economic recession. Greenblatt argues that mega-cap tech stocks like Amazon, Alphabet, and Microsoft are reasonably valued despite their remarkable price appreciation. Marks and Greenblatt agree that the Fed’s promise to keep rates low for many years is a true gamechanger in the valuation of assets, and they discuss whether high inflation could change this. Lastly, Marks …

    MUST SEE CONTENT
    If you are a Plus or Pro member who skipped or was planning to skip this interview because you don't know who Ophir Gottlieb is, I urge you to PLEASE WATCH.  I was absolutely floored by his insight and framework for investing. He discusses three actionable ideas yes, but the real gem in this interview was Ophir himself. I've been following him for a while but finally getting to speak to him and really getting to see how he thinks was incredible. Oh, and his returns are spectacular.

    Real Vision Exchange Survey 07/2021
    Make sure to vote in this week's @Real Vision Exchange survey. The bullishness on equities and Bitcoin from last week is currently paying off nicely. Of course the Exchange is still ahead but the Bot was at least able to overtake the S&P again. I made a change to the survey. Because of the confusion with currencies I removed the EURUSD from the universe and instead added Commodities. I got a lot of requests to include them, as the asset class was clearly not represented. Of course, it…

    Real Vision Exchange Survey 06/2021
    Make sure to vote in this week's @Real Vision Exchange survey. Last week's de-risking in sentiment in the survey allowed the Real Vision Bot, which is based on the pure interview sentiment, to catch up a bit initially (he was more risk on - long S&P). However his large VIX allocation soon destroyed his early profits. Meanwhile the Exchange performed very well due to the spike in Bitcoin, where participants kept their exposure more or less unchanged (they moved out of equities but kept Bitco…

    The Discourse: Failing at Success w/ Jeremiah Seidman & Han Rhee
    This was originally produced and intended as a special edition of the Discourse, as I tap into the Exchange to proactively extract value that I need from @Jeremiah S & @Han S Rhee for my trade idea: Long Sunpower Corp (SPWR) for a short squeeze, trigger catalyst - Joe Biden’s speech during US presidential inauguration. Only thing is, stock rallied +18% yesterday. Thereby making our video somewhat useless..  BUT - I will not let allow for collaborative minds put together to generate nea…

    If I would have to write a paper or thesis now for Uni I think id write something titled:  "The impact of social media and popular culture on financial stock and investment strategies" You could spend your time looking at Twitter and /wsb and analyse price movements of the popular Stonks like, TSLA, Signal, GME (gamestop) , BB, Hertz, SPACE, PENN and probably a bunch of other stocks and perhaps also Bitcoin.     Who knows you might get to intern for an Investor Relation team to hel…

    BTC: Bullish continuation pattern OR bearish double-top?
    OK hive community / all technical charting experts. This is BTC on a daily chart. Is this a classic symmetrical triangle - indicating a bullish continuation pattern after consolidation?  OR is this a bearish 'double top', indicating trend exhaustion?  Thanks in advance for your opinions!

    Moar Vol and VIX with Jason Buck and Ben Eifert
    Jason Buck and Tyler Pearson have been talking to a handful of Volatility traders on RV.  Jason recently interviewed Ben Eifert who has amassed quite a following on twitter and also runs a fund called QVR.  Their conversation is quite a sandwich (24 pages or 1h16 min of podcast) but fun quite insightful. Since the topic of Vol is quite complicated and filled with jargon so I used Otter.ai to make a transcript of the interview. The transcript is like 95 ish % correct, so the spelling can be of…

    Shorting the Russell 2000 (IWM) via a bear put ladder spread (August expiry)
    * SHORT Russell 2000 (IWM) via an August Bear put ladder spread going long the 220 put contract and short the 185 and 180 put contracts for a debit of $5.20. * Hold duration until August expiration or IWM reaching 185. * Max profit is 29.80.  Breakeven is at 214.80.  R/R = 5.73 * I suspect August is more than enough time for the Russell to have at least a 12-15% correction after such a strong run.  Even Jeremy Grantham believes this is a bubble and should pop by late spring to summer.

    EVERYTHING YOU WANTED TO KNOW ABOUT INFLATION
    @Steven Van Metre interviews Michael Ashton, founder of Enduring Investments. Ashton thinks that the Consumer Price Index is an imperfect metric but is nevertheless an optimal way to measure inflation. He argues that the extraordinary growth in money stock (induced by the Federal Reserve) will indeed augur inflation. Van Metre contends that various deflationary forces, namely the decrease in the velocity of money, will stop inflation in its tracks and could in fact bring deflation. CLICK TO WA…

    Delusional Mania leading to a Train Wreck?
    Looking over at 25 years of Russell 2000 history, the magnitude and timing of the current move up from the March 2020 bottom is unparalleled.  I've identified all the big moves with minimal to no pullbacks, and none of them have moved up so sharply and quickly.  You can see the percentage rise and number of days for each move.  Interestingly, each of those moves was followed by a minimum 4-6 month decline (either a correction or an official bear market).  And as we can see it took several more …

    So Raoul has recently talked about the risks of a new lockdown once Biden gets into office. But I've also heard people say how it will be hard to convince red states to do this. How does federal vs state powers work in this situation in the US (I'm from Australia so am not as familiar with US system as most)? Can Biden force republican states to lock down?
