Julian Brigden, Co-founder of Macro Intelligence 2 Partners analyses the oil market, in What Could Pop? In this timely presentation, Julian lays out a series of macro knock-on events that he expects will take oil below $20, the SPX below 1600, and possibly lead to further devaluation of the RMB.

    He nailed it timing-wise. Great explanation, interesting to see a different perspective on ramifications of low oil prices other than producers sell for less and consumers win.

    We could retest the highs one and/or two more times? However, this is a certain end game.

    Great analysis and Video. Could listen to him all day. However i do find myself concluding that this is as much an argument for QE4 than anything else. Fair though that he did say "barring QE4."

    Some great charts, especially the EM bubble chart . . . but I'm afraid that Julian's analysis has way too much correlation confused with causality.

    alex, usually referring to higher rated / high quality corporate bonds, eg rated BBB, A or AA google the ishares LQD etf factsheet for examples.

    student right here: when he refers to "investment grade" @ 6.52 does he mean high yield, low rated corporate bonds, or higher rated corporate bonds,??

    I hope he could comment if this scenario on crude oil is also negative for gold? It seems so....

    Second time through was even better. Julian thinks clearly and expresses himself succinctly. If I ever doubt the value of RVTV, I just need to review this video and any doubts will be gone. Wow.

    Julian, great Video! Question@min22: Why do HFs in a falling market not have the short's to cover due to reduced gross leverage? I assume this amplifies a downturn but I cannot see the relation

    $30 oil will eventually stop US frackers and incr the US import of oil. Thereby correcting the rest of world's shortage of USD that Julian asserts. ie cheap imported oil will eventually weaken the USD

    I work in big oil and we are in trouble at $40 let alone $20s. This guy has me looking at the open razor on my bathroom vanity. Great technical analysis. Superb insights if somewhat worrying..

    Exceptional presentation. I'm wondering what the CBs have up there sleeves. I'd love to see something on dollar and oil relationship to property prices in foreign markets.

    The most coherent thesis I've seen on how and why a crash in the most important commmodity in the world plays out across and through global markets & how to profit from bone-headed central bankers

    Hard to get that kind of insight in a different format. One major reason why the 30 second soundbites won't live here. Well done.

    When collateral terms tighten up, the market will get fragile and it won't take much for a wave of selling to hit and concentrated dealer market that is capital constrained.
