    A little too "flash", and full of his superior skills. I suspect that is the main reason for the high negative votes. I do agree with some that an interview format would have served him better.

    And another thing - at the 9:45min mark he hits on a good point. How many times have we been stopped out of a conviction trade, only to see it play they way we planned.?! Argh. I hate that. Learning to trust my instinct, assimilate as much macro econ as i can and go for it. Long gold, silver. USD will only hold as currency of last resort, until its not.

    This is the weirdest rating I have seen since I've been a subscriber. High down votes with NO corresponding negative comments. ?! WTF RVTV people. There have been many more poorer interviews this one.

    I don't understand the negativity in these comments either. He described my own tactical trading activity very well. Yes, it doesn't always work and it isn't as easy/obvious as some others in these comments seem to think. (It always is though after the trade. But my broker makes me trade the right side of the chart. If anyone has a broker that let's them trade the middle, please share the name!)

    Truly a rockstar. Just what are you going to do when you get put those 210 spoos when it trades at 110, hey? Actually, good job but let's publish faster as holiday is over. Cheers!

    Don't understand the "haterade" in these comments (actually, I DO have a theory but I'll keep it to myself). I found his casual discussion of asymmetric risk/reward , particularly around Brexit and the currency moves, very interesting. Just wish the talk had been a bit more structured.

    I liked it - he was direct and said what he thought would happen in various markets. Please just try to close the filmed to published gap RV!

    Anyone else just want to take other side of whatever he's pitching?

    I want to thank you for adding this interview. A great illustration of the poor quality of analysis we find on the sellside today. No process, no deep macro analysis, just a torrent of jargon and "tactical" rubbish to get trade volume. Breathtaking hubris.

    A few good nuggets of strategic info. Probably would have been better as an interview where the discussion could have been directed more

    Thanks duh.
    If we're all managing large accounts and have a large staff to crunch numbers well ok. But we're not.
