China Conviction and Capital Flight Mark Hart

The Interview ·
Featuring Mark Hart

Published on: February 26th, 2016 • Duration: 26 minutes

In a follow-up to his January interview, Mark Hart, founder of Corriente Advisors, returns to Real Vision to discuss developments in his Yuan devaluation thesis, to expand on which currency pairs interest him in a strengthening dollar scenario, to consider the deflationary forces at work across the globe, and to examine the banks in a Eurozone that has been "structurally created wrong."

    Clearly this gentleman has proven wrong in China and Europe. Perhaps a refresh of this interview is due?

      Not to mention that the dollar has been the weakest currency in the world over a couple of years, technically threatening to crash through massive self support into a bottomless meltdown. What happens when Mueller convicts Trump and the rest? Will US dollar & assets collapse toward zero?

    "Europe started as a steal cartel and then turned into something that sounded a lot more humanitarian and inclusive." LOL, as a European citizen I love these sharp comments. Brilliant discussion. I am gonna look at put options on the CNY/CNH around a strike of 8, either via a us broker or saxo. Massive thanks for the ideas and analysis!

    I think people playing the miners miss adressing some parts of history like a revaluation with heavy taxation on production following. Both have historic precedent in gold and oil.

    Real Vision is a brilliant idea. I feel I'm back in school with the very best teachers. I have started to bring a notebook to each session as there are so many actionable ideas.

    Always in awe of Mark and Raoul together! I do Not agree that there's no inflation tho. Necessities such as food, shelter, healthcare and education are skyrocketing. Discretionary retail in deflation.

    Good interview - thanks. I see a closet Sanders supporter with the 'country management' comment. He wanted to say more, but his simile told it all. Hey no problem, if we find a way to pay for $20T!

    Visionary, one of the few that recognizes the positive deflationary skew of technology, innovation and the mass disruption factor

    I'm not sure US citizens can buy anything in Iran yet. I too would like to know how the small investor can own Iranian assets. I don't believe the TSE30 is available thru US brokers.

    And I also can’t tell if he’s convinced the Chinese will devalue because he thinks that’s what they want, or because it’s complete consensus in our bizarro world that devaluing is a good thing?

    I really appreciate his challenge to my admittedly amateur theses: namely that the US is in terrible shape, and as a retailer I get downright emotional when he says there’s no signs of inflation.More!

    how do you express long Iran? Also what happens if China gets rid of CNH and HKD, and it all becomes one single deliverable currency?

    I agree that cash brings optionality but as a consultant who has preached "fully invested" for 25 yrs, how do I now get clients to consider holding cash? Even 7-10% looks huge versus policy goal of 0

    What would be your advise to Play the Devaluation of the yuan for average Joe Investor? Trading the FX cross is probably not a wise move in this case?

    If China does continue to devalue wouldn't that be bullish for the Dollar and bearish for gold? Just curious being a newbie
