    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 to make a transcript of the interview. The transcript is like 95 ish % correct, so the spelling can be of…

    The Discourse 2020 Finale: Moritz Heiden, Two Quants
    Results are in: +22.78%, we crushed it.  We, the Exchange, outperformed the Real Vision Bot Portfolio (RV interviewed guests- yes, the very people we are here to seek financial guidance from) by 2x the percentage points (RV Bot +11.30%). Oh, and we also destroyed SPX by +16%, and that’s with a healthy SPX +6% rally, as well as sidestepping the entire US election volatility. Find out how we did it in my discussion with @Moritz Heiden of Two Quants (the other quant being @Moritz Seibert), br…

    RV Presents: The AFTERMATH (Mon 23rd & Tues 24th)
    Election Day may have passed, but uncertainty is FAR from gone in a world where markets and policy collide like never before in modern history. Understanding the implications, not just of what's ahead, but what just happened, is critical.  Joe Biden and Donald Trump have broken records as getting the most and 2nd most popular votes in US history, with the highest voter turnout in over a century. Nearly 160 million Americans voters are deeply engaged in the political system. Shouldn't you be as…

    Is The Exchange Working? (Podcast w/ Matt Daniell)
    Last week, @Matt Daniell posted a simple question:  Is The Exchange Working? (link) For which he got a lot of feedback from Exchange members. I purposely didn’t interject into the conversation, and watched intently from the sidelines.  Over the weekend, I called Matt (who is based in Australia - my side of the planet for once!) to discuss, and had a great conversation about The Exchange that many may feel they can relate to. Matt was also kind enough to let me record our call for the benefit…
