    The only question I care about is: what level in the Dow/S&P does the Fed want to target. Anything below that level is under risked. Anything above that level is over risked.

      Although that comment sounds a bit loopy at first reading, the recent Grant Williams podcast interview with Mike Green includes a portion where Mike talks about the Fed looking at inflation expectations 'channel' through the financial markets action. Mike goes on to discuss how FED interest rate reductions after market corrections supports a negative correlation between bonds and stocks, which in turn supports use of leveraged risk parity trades (up to a point). https://ttmygh.podbean.com/e/teg_0003/ cheers

      Thank you Bruce for the link to podcast -- it is amazing and I feel a little scared LoL. Mike says his reading of Fed people he's sat down with is that they only know what they are taught, which is anything except how markets work in real time. This is only half the truth, as they don't need to know it all because market mechanics can be outsourced to others equal to or greater than Mike. They have been playing with markets for some decades now and have learned how things work and they know exactly what will happen.. in theory. Mike's points confirm my view that market is too far gone now in price/debt levels and have become now a national security type of concern -- national player of which needs to see ONLY a managed rise or the house of cards falls.

    Another guy I'd love to see on is Paul Lange from Disciplined Trading Services. His ability to read the market is amazing. I've learned an incredible amount from that guy.

      Danilo, I liked that blend from Dan too. I told him we should have him update us if his view changes. But, we are sure to have him on again in the next two months. Thanks for the feedback.

    Nice job Ed. Let's get Lakshman Achuthan back on. We're looking at a potential topping process in the market and his take on growth and inflation could be very interesting. Especially inflation with the FIG. If we're at an inflection point with inflation, and Dan's take on select commodity charts turning up plays out, the FIG could swing the analysis one way or the other.

      I like that idea. Maybe Lakshman can talk to us right around summer end or school beginning? I think that’s the critical juncture for the economy.

    I like the way you zoom in by 10% on Peter when he says implications of his analysis to focus the viewer’s attention. This is a nice trick.

    Where do you see AUD\USD going? I want to buy Australian golden miners. If AUD strengthens it will lower the profitability of the Australian miners, right?

      If inflation plays out with commodities rising then AUD should strengthen but only if markets don't collapse. In a risk off event, AUD weakens vs USD. The gold miners are so leveraged to the gold price and the good operators are very very profitable at this time. Also, the Aussie miners are well placed to continue meeting guidance due to very low level of Covid here and the national importance placed on continuing the mining royalties flow to government coffers. Best of luck.

    Good discussion, I like the copper vs gold chart. I thought it was very telling of what's happening macro wise. Can we have more discussions on EM, particularly Chinese markets and its technology sector. Lately it has become a very appealing alternative to S&P. Cheers!

    Thanks. Great interview. I believe equities do alright under inflationary conditions. Gold does better, and energy does best. So I’m not totally convinced the SP500 heads south over the next few years, even with the FED put....

    Please bring Dan or Mark Ritchie on again if the trend begins to change. I like hearing their views and TA, and think it’s important to bring them back if the bull market runs out of steam.

    Dan was a great guest as it is not often that you can find a technician that understands and incorporates fundamentals and cross asset analysis and is able to convey them in a macro context!

    Great insights. I'd love to see Dan on weekly given the inflection point we're at in the markets to complement other macro discussions. That would be a powerful combination for RV subscribers. Thanks for another valuable discussion Ed.

    Good discussion. Would have liked to hear what his thoughts/trading action would be if SP500 3000 level doesn't hold. Also his view on gold, bitcoin, and relative attractiveness of some asset classes beyond equities and bonds.
