Pro Macro: In Focus – QT & Integrated Deterrence

Published on: April 8th, 2022

Crosscurrents continue to complicate the investment environment. TINA has kept equities bid. The FED is being thwarted by Equities refusing to tighten financial conditions. QT now comes into focus. Putin wants to thwart Biden’s Integrated Deterrence. Gold and the Ruble are his first weapons of choice.

    Great In Focus! Regarding shorting SPX. What is the best way to do it regarding buying power and risk/reward: SPY Puts? SPX put debit spreads? /ES puts or debit spreads? I heard you mentioned SH, do you like this ETF to short the S&P? Many thanks Julian...tough market...

      Its tough to choose which specific expression of the trade to use. Depends so much on your personal risk reward and situation.

    I note GDX is just under $40 now and gold just over $1946. If miners are beginning to over perform vs gold (looks like it over past few weeks) the price of GDX could well blow through 40 with gold remaining under 1950. I already have GDX 40 and 45 calls from earlier this year so I will pass on this trade idea.

    So Chile got stopped out and almost immediately spiked up again - very annoying. I like it longer term as a copper play. The problem is that I have really no idea when this so-called massive undersupply of copper will result in further price increases. We had a good copper run until mid 2021 and since then has take a breather it seems.

    I love Julian work but the fiting line of the orange dots in page 8 graph could have any direction.
