Macro: Facts Matter – Live with Naufal Sanaullah

Live ·
Featuring Naufal Sanaullah

Published on: July 2nd, 2020 • Duration: 63 minutes

In the world of asset allocation, there is one rule that trumps all: always make decisions in accordance with facts and evidence as they become available. In other words, markets are not static, and so you must continuously study developments in order to achieve the only goal that exists in financial markets - profit. In this segment of Real Vision Live, Max Wiethe sits down with Naufal Sanaullah, chief macro strategist at EIA All Weather Alpha Partners, to understand the seemingly interminable list of factors that contribute to the formulation of an investment thesis. Additionally, Sanaullah will provide viewers with an update on his shift from bullish to bearish and why he believes markets are at a turning point.

      Thanks DLS. We hold your perspective in high esteem here. Hopefully (through my own hard work) this won't be the last time I get the DLS seal of approval. MRW

    Great interview and discussion. If Naufal's thesis plays out and we have a "risk-off" market reaction, I suspect the US$ will start to rise. I would be interested in his views about the US$ as the US election approaches and into the end of 2020. Thanks

    I'm a huge fan of Naufal - really enjoyed his previous talk and this one was fantastic too. I really appreciate his flexibility in his views on the market and how he pivots based on incoming alternative data and his macro outlook. Please get him back on RV as much as possible!

    Great job RV for interviewing Naufal and Mark Ritchie that have two opposing views that are well thought with presenting evidence for the bear and bull case.

    Hi Naufal and Max, great interview largely backing the RV thesis of the consequences for the economy and following insolvencies. @Naufal: What are you're indicators telling you Friday night July 3rd and can you share these indicatprs with us on Monday July 6th as my feeling is we are in for a down draft now. Thanks Michiel

    Great Interview....Thanks!. Would have been good to touch on some of the data which may counter the bear naritive and perhaps just an explanation why that data may not be relevant in predicting the short term outlook (E.g. the AAI Investor Sentiment Survey being so Negative Still).

      We did touch on conflicting jobs data that came out yesterday but we lost that section due to the technical difficulties. The survey period for the "stellar" jobs report only covered the first 2 weeks of June and thus didn't capture the downturns that he saw from alternative flash data which started in the second half of June in almost every source we discussed.

    Hi folks, we had some technical difficulties today but Naufal was super understanding and recorded an hour of great content even with market close bearing down us. Sorry we couldn’t get to any questions from the audience.

      Naufal is one of my favorites. I like the way he thinks and weaves a data-based analysis with perception of market behaviors. I hope you continue to come back to him periodically.
