Breaking Down the Meltdown: Live with Mark Ritchie II and Thomas Thornton

Rates, Repo, and Eurodollars through a Meltdown — Live with Jeff Snider

Live ·
Featuring Jeffrey Snider

Published on: March 11th, 2020 • Duration: 54 minutes

Jeff Snider, head of global investment research at Alhambra Investments, joins Real Vision’s Ed Harrison to break down the dollar and eurodollar system’s behavior during a meltdown, the rush by market participants to purchase “pristine collateral,” and the implications of the Fed’s recent actions. Snider explains his perspective of the Fed’s repo operations since September and why (as he dubbed it) the Fed’s “Greenspan Moon Cult” has caused even the brightest economists to justify the market’s behavior with any explanation other than risk aversion.

    Jeff is my favorite speaker. He knows the shit going on and when an interviewer can ask the correct questions they tease out a more comprehensible path. Great job Ed!

    Are the banks taking all the counterparty risks in the repo market? DLS

    Great interview. Always good to hear Jeff's views as he is probably the foremost expert on some of this stuff.

    Hmmm. One would think today's UST puke will be short-lived...

      All depends on when these hedge fund blowups end and if the Fed can keep pumping in liquidity (esp to Asia and some EM)

    if banks have too little UST as collateral, but too much cash(fed funds).. .why can't they use those fed funds as collateral? even higher quality no?

    Absolutely brilliant. I’ve listened to all Jeff’s interviews on RVTV, Macrovoices and elsewhere over the last five or more years and I’ve never seen him as animated. One of / if not the best voice on the $ and $Euro ever.

    Someone should recommend this guy as fed chair. We wouldn't be in this mess. I learned so much from his Euro university on Macro voices!

    Jeff Sniders has the most coherent message I have heard when looking for explanations about the goings on in the plumbing of the financial system.

    Just brilliant. Thanks to RV and Jeff. Nobody willing to risk balance sheet. Ugly, systemic stuff.
