    This was a good one. Be sure to check out @"Jack Farley" 's preview that is pinned to the exchange as well! Real Vision's Jack Farley welcomes David Meneret, Founder & CIO of Mill Hill Capital, to discuss the nuances of credit markets and strategies to manage risk when investing in collateralized securities. Meneret dives into U.S. credit markets and states that the current yield reflects a failure to recognize "unknown" unknowns. He shares his framework for investing …

    Something To Think About On Credit For Friday's Guest, David Meneret
    So on Friday it looks like we will have David Meneret on Real Vision to discuss all things concerning credit derivatives: credit default swaps, high-yield bonds, distressed debt, and more. I saw @Jack Farley put up an interesting tweet this morning:  (1) Jack Farley on Twitter: "just spoke with a credit investor who said that credit default swaps are priced so cheaply "...it's like the VIX at 5 or 6" credit risk is the one risk that so many have shrugged off" / Twitter Cr…

    If you can pick the mind of 1 or 2 people from the Exchange (about anything), who would it be? Use names & “@“ tag. Also feel free to write what / why (i.e. @Moritz Heiden - want to know how quants look at markets- tickers? Charts? Lines of code? @Matt Daniell to learn how to develop a bulletproof daily process and stay disciplined to it.)

    The Quick explainer for Eurobonds is this:    Eurobonds were introduced to the financial markets in the early 1960s with the launch of internationally distributed and mainly US dollar-denominated bonds. Originating as an offshore market, and not subject to the exclusive regulation of one government or group of governments, Eurosecurities initially benefited from the exploitation of inefficiencies in individual domestic markets. The introduction, in 1963, of the Interest Equalisation Tax in the…

    Chris Cole, founder and CIO of Artemis Capital Management, sits down with Michael Green to discuss why he views volatility as the ultimate expression of illiquidity and insolvency. Together, they explore how the Fed’s actions in 2020 swiftly stomped out both of these risks, explain how structural dynamics resulted in rapid equity price appreciation over the last year, and take a closer look at volatility and the options market and what Cole describes as a "bull market in fear".

    Recession/Depression Escape Strategy & Maybe an Answer to Wealth Inequality: Thought Experiment ...
         I would like to propose a thought experiment...I literally thought of this 10 minutes ago, so it's a rough draft:     In order to stimulate the economy out of recessions/depressions, what if every citizen was given equal amounts of fiscal stimulus cash AND an equivalent debt payment credit at the same time (on regular intervals).  It may or may not require an expiration date...not sure yet.  I assume it would have to be a central bank cryptocurrency or something like that to make this work…

    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…

    awesome interview - Roy Niederhoffer: ONE MILLION TRADES, ZERO REGRETS
    This is really really good, one of the best interviews I've seen. Fascinating look into behavioral/psychological emotion based herd behavior mixed with systematic trading, which has inherent "human" elements in it. Neuroscientist turned behavioral psychology based systematic trader + talks about 9/11 and the culture of integrity (actual) within the futures trading community reminded me of @Seahyung Park & @Jaymes Rosenthal + a few more I can't remember offhand.

    NEW FEATURE: Trade Idea
    Post your trade ideas! These are trade IDEAS. Not Trades. Not Trade recommendations. DO NOT focus on the performance of the trade - that’s NOT what this is. There is no input for price, nor live market tracking, for this very purpose. The point of trade ideas is to transform conversation into action (theoretical), theory into markets. Inflation vs deflation vs disinflation vs reflation ← enough. WHAT IS THE TRADE? Trade ideas serve as a starting point of discussion. Again, your PnL / Performa…
