    Nice to see how this format is "coming together" vs. initial forays. Also, a nice change-of-pace after watching (and very much enjoying) Raoul and company's intensive Macro review, released yesterday.

    I would like to suggest a knock effect.
    What affects the lengths of a women's skirt. Very interesting study. It will be very popular.

    Entertaining and informative. Look forward to the next segment. Knock on effect of the dollar Rally, one unusual example. Smart Money will start outperforming not so smart money when the markets become choppy!!!

    I really enjoyed this episode as it draws parallels to the Sri Lankan Cinnamon industry which supplies the world with about 80% of its demand. Thanks

    Constructive feedback - Please give Jake a chance and have him replace Alex to see how it goes.

      or replace Alex with Brian Price. He does a great job on trade ideas.

      Agree. Feels like we’re watching a failed date with Alex’s awkwardness. The series would be better to watch even without a second host. Justine could just wear headphones and talk to a framed picture each week

      Simply checked in on comments for this (was put off from the "Knock on Effect" couple episodes ago). I will simply leave this hear independent of reference to any specific individual: If one prioritises expression over content in finance, you will eventually be robbed of your money. And by all means, keep doing so - for it is a necessity in the reallocation of capital from dumb to smart hands.
