The Macro Ops Difference

This isn’t your Grandfather’s newsletter. In fact, this isn’t even a newsletter. So what is Macro Ops? Glad you asked. It’s an investment research service that exists to help make you a calculating, ruthlessly efficient, and consistently profitable investor. To do this, we combine institutional-grade research, unparalleled training and tools, and the world’s best community of dedicated traders and investors.

Edge Building Quantitative Tools

In a world of increasing noise, it’s imperative to have the proper tools to tease out signals and separate the wheat from the chaff. As fund managers ourselves, this is one of our biggest ongoing priorities. We’ve increased our information efficiency and analytical advantage by building out a custom dashboard full of proprietary tools and data that we (and Collective members) can use to analyze the market.

Iron Sharpens Iron

We believe that in investing as in life, we eventually become the average of the people we interact with most. This is why building and nourishing a community of like-minded investors is so important to us, personally. Our private slack group hosts some of the smartest and most talented fund managers, analysts, bankers, business owners, and serious retail traders around. This is by far the most valuable aspect of our service. Here we share ideas, discuss theory, red team each other’s opinions, and build real-life friendships.
