Rocking Real Estate Revisited

Rocking Real Estate Revisited

June 4, 2021

Catch this fast-paced assessment on rocking real estate with @LoganMohtashami, an expert data analyst on the housing market. Logan joins Samantha to catch up on his bullish housing view from January: Real Estate - Perfect Storm To Outperform 

He explains why this is the unhealthiest housing market in the last 10 years, where rates should be based on economic data and where they are headed as 'replacement demand' continues to support a buoyant market for both existing and new housing sales.

June 3, 2021

Retail traders are baaach and driving another round of Meme Mania!

GME, AMC, BYND, BB and many more likely if this 'single-stock gamma option' run continues to drive market structure madness in select stocks. AMC was the most traded equity in the world at one point with market valuation more than tripling from all-time-highs and bond holders made whole.

Equity is driving Credit - the new not-normal! Join Jonathan @vigtecofficial and Samantha try to explain and position for the next big shark-fest of feeding frenzy.

The Psychology of Trading Risk

The Psychology of Trading Risk

June 1, 2021

Solving the puzzle of trading psychology is front-and-center with Denise Shull, "trader psychologist to the stars", as she sits down with Samantha for an introspective look into overcoming fear, frustration and disappointment. Denise is expert at leading traders, investors and money managers to the real 'why' behind their less-than-peak performance, because "there's this magic of getting the negative (feeling) correct." Other pearls: "Individual traders have a tendency to think there is some magic bullet. If there is, it is understanding the market in your own words, then understanding yourself, and marrying the two."

Denise is very much about empowering traders to listen to their intuition, and what is intuition? "If it's really intuition, its expertise that's gone from cognitive, linear knowledge in your head to pattern recognition in your body." Both discuss the frustrations of how few women there are in trading and finance to which Denise responds, "Brain research, and other research shows, that the more you are predicting other people and the more you know yourself, the better you manage money. Women tend to be naturally better at both of those things."

We can't thank Denise enough for sharing her time and insights! https://therethinkgroup.net/

Making Market Timing Calls with Cem Karsan

Making Market Timing Calls with Cem Karsan

May 7, 2021

Samantha talks volatility trading strategies with quant brain and fintwit celebrity Cem Karsan @jam_croissant, founder of Kai Volatility Advisors.

From Convexity and Risk Premia to Reflexivity and Deal Positioning, Cem shares insights on his 27-point model for assessing risk and timing market moves. With growing tail risk, valuation sentiment reset and diminishing returns to Fed-Fiscal reaction function, Cem see a strong market pullback come September and a larger secular (not just cyclical) move from growth to value for years to come - what Samantha has called since last summer as the rotation from "Paper to Things".

Samantha asks Cem his views on Bitcoin and crypto as a vehicle for supply/demand flows and macro backdrop as market moves to inflation hedges, and liquidity rotation. You will most definitely want to rewatch this one again and again.
