    Entertaining, but too much crammed in. Let's go slower and think deeper!

    Id like to see him walk onto the the set of CNBC's mad money and smash Cramer in the back of the head with a bat! :-) - Some awesome analysis took place right there. MASSIVE thumbs up!

    Love this guys style though I disagree with him a lot. For example numerous retailers (Walmart, Target, TJ Max, etc) have announced wage hikes for 2015. Will be interesting to see what happens

    More yada yada fedspeak nonsense. How many productive man hours have been lost analyzing the garbage spewing from the shills at the FED?

    Love the passion, and like using the TA to confirm the story being told by the data. Keep him in the rotation longterm, please.

    Too much, too fast. Like drinking water from a fire hose. More homework definitely in order. Chart work first-rate. Thx.

    I never understood the Soros reflexivity BS before but it could be as simple as: sometimes the market leads the fundamentals. If so, 90% of the participants are offside wrt China. This is opportunity

    This analysis is US centric; something that has happened recently is the enormous move in the SHCOMP. This is a classic Soros reflexivity kinda trade where the market could *lead* the fundamentals

    Actually, if you consider UST yield differential trade (EU->US)+ dollar currency trade together, if the USD corrects temporarily it could be quite a significant move.

    Very interesting. I closed my UUP long the other day when Hamada said 105 on yen was appropriate. Looked like CB's wanted to kill momentum. Action too sideways for a while now and too crowded

    This is great. The kind of detail analysis is so helpful. People talk in big themes but the devil is always in the detail. I want to go be his apprentice and learn what he does. Great Job!

    love Greg's personality. I paraphrase his presentations lately on his site and here to encapsulate his personality as *reviews data and concludes* "...wtf, shit's broken guys, stay safe."

    excellent (and passionate!) summary of the current market dynamics - i like the fact that macro and technicals come into play to tell the story.. has the dollar reached a short term peak?
