    RV referring to value stocks a lot recently and I think it’s worth an interview and deep dive to redefine value in this new environment.

      Would like to second Joe‘s request, as well as to include greater clarity/detail on the meaning of “bond proxy trades” and “everything behaves like cash or commodity now.” So great to listen in on Ed and Ash thinking through the big picture. Understanding better how the details fit, or don’t fit, with dominant and informed macro views would be of tremendous interest.

    This ties in very well with the book I'm reading "The Traders Book of Volume." by Mark Leibovet, Everything is green but with extremely low volume. Smart money is leaving the market.

    Very interesting talk guys. Question for Ed as he is thinking thru his framework (and I have not yet listened to the interviews) : if we get a pull back, is there a notion that the market will settle at a much lower level? Or will a pullback be corrected relatively quickly ? Raoul’s ‘Unfolding’ phase can get (*is*) pretty ugly. An extended second wave will slow economies down. This could increase the probability that once we pull back significantly there won’t be any major correction to the upside for, what, Years?

    The EO are there to buy time for markets until the next stimulus bill is passed. I cannot stand Trump but he is a confidence man who knows the EO are not going to happen.

    Among the many terrific RV interviews, Ed's interview that broadcast today was really superior. Together, Ed and his guest discussed a unique perspective -- suggesting that equities are acting more like commodities. And if Ed's interview tomorrow promises to be equally unique, then it begs the question. Is this Friday the time for an extended (60min?) RVDB between Ed and Raoul to discuss about the next phase of this market? Raoul's insolvency phase and the timing of Ed's predicted roll-off? It appears as if Raoul's and Ed's recent interviews are slightly modifying their perspectives. If this is so, then it is time to get these two guys together to talk things out in person and in a long enough format for them to fully express how their opinions might are evolving.

      The commodity trading angle is certainly interesting. Have to agree after hearing how it works, that this mentality is present today. Excellent interview.

    Ed, Explain how the President’s EO’s “will not see the light of day”? When they are a fait accompli indeed? Or, are you preaching unreasoned anti-Trump bias , and empty hearsay?

      Everything I am hearing here in DC is saying that even Republican allies are not prepared to implement them. Moreover, companies may not act on the payroll tax deferment because of uncertainty about the legality of the Executive Order. That’s the basis for my statements. It has nothing to do with bias. It is predictive. I am making a forecast.

      Ha haaaa! If valid, consider the possibility that Ash ow has a camera with a longer focal length. Just like the markets — an Optical illusion!

    Holy cow guys! Great briefing. Had to drag the video back several time to grok what Ed was describing. "Pretzel Logic" jumped into my head. *trotting off to dig out my Steely Dan albums*. Thank you so much for what you do.
