Global Macro Meets Crypto

This week on the podcast Chris D. talks crypto. This is not an episode about HODL’ing, moons and lambos. Rather Chris discusses some of the features and benefits of trading cryptocurrencies.

He then goes into the differences between trading spot bitcoin and the CME futures, how the crypto markets resemble commodities in the 70’s and tech stocks in the 90’s, as well as a way to use BTC trading to express a view on the current US/Chinese trade war turmoil.

Option Trading With Darrin Johnson

Chris chats with fellow Macro Ops Collective member Darrin Johnson.

Darrin is an independent volatility trader, trading for himself rather than for a firm. His ideas, approach and techniques to trading are rigorously researched and vetted. He has spent a lot of time getting really good at focusing on what works, and eliminating what doesn’t.

Darrin does a great job of explaining his approach to volatility and how we all are vol traders, one way or another.

If you are interested in option trading this a must listen episode!

In this episode, we go further down the $TSLAQ bear case and talk about why this quarter is make or break time for the troubled car maker. They’ve run out of ammo and Biren feels that unless they have a magic bullet somewhere, this quarter will be what all the Tesla bears have been waiting for.

From there we shift into the eurodollar system covering both the futures and the eurodollar banking system.

We finish with a look at the Uranium markets.

The convo starts off centered around the Yellow Jackets in France, the global rise in populism and how Ben sees BREXIT hurting businesses around the world.

It then moves on to South America, the Venezuelan conflict and what that looks like, not only in Venezuela but across the Americas. It’s a situation right on the edge of all out war. Ben discusses how FARC and ELN (The Colombian Narco-Terrorist Organizations) are currently interacting with the Maduro regime.

This was a wide ranging discussion and for those who don’t get a chance to think about business related cyber threats, financial threats, and operational threats need to have a listen and do some thinking about how the current issues will impact markets.

Ben is a fantastic contact to have, you can reach out to him at ben.hockman@gmail.com or on LinkedIn.
