With the global economy teetering on the edge of recession and financial markets whipsawing on a daily basis, these are challenging times even for seasoned investors. At times like these, technical analysis helps clarify the bigger picture by establishing correlations with downturns of the past. Few market participants are better positioned to help us navigate current conditions than Jurrien Timmer, Director of Global Macro at Fidelity Investments and a Chartered Market Technician. Timmer speaks to Peter Brandt, founder and CEO of Factor LLP and a renowned technician himself, about the prevailing macro environment. Timmer and Brandt share lessons from the past (did you know the 1994 Federal Reserve tightening cycle was the only one to produce a soft landing or that there was significant “quantitative easing” after World War II?) and identify trends for the future. The two chartists talk about bonds, rates, earnings, and Bitcoin, and they single out what they see as the greatest "chart crimes." Recorded on April 26, 2022.
