The Critical Tell for Stocks

Skin In The Game ·
Featuring Mark Ritchie II

Published on: August 5th, 2019 • Duration: 21 minutes

Mark Ritchie II, CIO of RTM Capital Advisors, sits down with Real Vision's Ed Harrison to discuss how he has re-positioned his investments after going 100% cash in December. With the Powell Pivot in January and the recent Fed rate cut painting a different macro picture, Ritchie has become more bullish. At the same time, he believes that the reaction to the Fed's cut over these next few weeks are crucial to market tone for the next six to nine months. Filmed on July 30, 2019 in New York.

    Really hate the pretentious and pompous demeanor of ed and vincent as interviewers. So much miss the clarity and authentic questions from days of raoul/grant/mike. Thanks for the content.

      Agree with Thomas, and don’t find either pretentious or pompous.

    The trade war with China is real, but the agricultural commodity suspension by China is not their big play. They know that they can buy what they want from other countries. If they buy soybeans from Brazil, who knows where they were grown. DLS

    So if no major risk events stocks go higher. A little weak? Not meaning to talk down after the fact, but bases were covered

    So is the current Friday/Monday sell-off based on institutions’ moves? That would be the bearish indicator that Mark was pointing to...

    Nice interview. Admittedly a little difficult the day before the big Fed announcement, but I think the alternative outcomes and things to look for were laid out very well. In general, it seems to me that Ed does his homework and that his questions are on point.

      I like Mark , his short term outlook is based on technicals\ market internals and he did provide insight into what would make him a buyer in the December interview like outperformance of sectors relative to overall market. He is sharing his views and trying to help us navigate a choppy market largely driven my Trumpian whim , so let’s be fair or the guy.
