I tend to shy away from stock-specific stuff. I don't trade individual stocks and I am very much a generalist when it comes to markets and about as far from a fundamental analysis practitioner as it gets. I ended up listening to this today while in the car just because it was in the Real Vision podcast que on my phone. It was really one of the better interviews I've listened to. Informative, entertaining, and a lot of specialized info on risk management. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

I'm very excited to share a tool I've built that can be used by technical or fundamental discretionary traders/investors to assist in sizing positions and also for setting a stop loss using the volatility of the instrument. Linked is a blog post on @Moritz Heiden and @Moritz Seibert great site www.twoquants.com that contains a web-based calculator and an instructional video outlining WHY you might want to size your positions in this way, where to find all the relevant information, and how to go through the process. We plan to create more useful tools like this so please let us know how you like it and what others tools you would like to see offered.
While you are there, please hit the subscribe button on the TwoQuants site. They are writing a great monthly report called FOCUS that is a must-read!
@Ash Bennington and @Raoul Pal had a great discussion on the RVDB Friday night and I wanted to share a chart I created showing the 2yr yield vs the 10yr yield. I also take a look at some stock indexes, gold, copper, soybeans, rice,platinum,and Brent crude oil. Lastly, a recommendation to check out @Han S Rhee excellent video on bitcoin and ethereum. https://exchange.realvision.com/post/bitcoin-chart-update-video-600c88581f824d2fa365e37c
Taking a look at the state of the trends in the constituents of the Bloomberg commodities index referenced in my video from a couple of days ago. Apologies for the weird ending...I decided to break the videos up. If you want to see the demo of the sizing tool, check here. https://exchange.realvision.com/post/position-sizing-and-stop-placement-tool-demo-feedback-requested-60074e6baefe5447091a6efb
I mentioned the other day I was working on some interactive tools that could be used by traders for position sizing and risk management. In this video, I demo the first iteration. Please let me know what you think and what else could be added. Thanks!
We had such a good, exchange-wide discussion on "the dollar" thanks to @Weston Nakamura and @Jack Farley taking up the mantle after my last video, I thought we could now approach commodity exposure. With the reflation trade all the rage, how can we best get involved?
I think broad commodity indices are a poor trading vehicle and in the video I detail why? I offer some suggestions for better options.
What is your preferred way to gain commodity exposure and why?
Seriously though, this pullback is nothing to be surprised about. This is just bitcoin doing it's thing. If you feeling uncomfortable, your position is probably too big. Size right and ride the rocket!
The DXY or US dollar Index is often brought up as a way to play currency fluctuations, particularly as a "safety trade". In this video, I take a look at how the DXY did in the Corona Panic of Q1, 2020 and how it's done since as compared to some other individual USD pairs available in futures form. As a trend follower, I track all the major USD crosses and don't follow the DXY. I see a benefit in the diversification, and as my video shows. There are extra returns to be had both in risk off, and risk on market regimes looking at individual pairs vs DXY. @Weston Nakamura this seems right up your alley and I'd like to know what you think is the best way to play currencies in risk on/off situations.
Checking out bitcoin and the others in the same general sector and category. There have been several attempted improvements to bitcoin's protocol over the years, mostly to enable more and faster transaction per block. The price movement of this group has been very similar in direction but not necessarily magnitude. In the video I mention checking out @Aaron Wise post of XLM https://exchange.realvision.com/post/jed-mccaleb-unspeakable-riches-in-the-wake-of-fraud-5ff517927134d215ce21810b
Also I mentioned a couple of videos that were very interesting check them out here:
