Macro Ops Monthly Intelligence Report, Dollar, Tesla and Birds with Alex Barrow

Chris sits down and chats with Macro-Ops Co-Founder Alex Barrow.

This one goes deep! If you are looking for an abridged version of the Monthly Intelligence Report, this isn’t it. If you want to download Alex’s views on the markets into your brain operating group, this is the episode for you.

We spend over two hours talking about:

Adam Robinson’s interview on the Knowledge Project Podcast, part 1
and part 2
And go over how he looks at markets.

We cover Copper to Gold Ratio and how the Credit market leads equities.

Tesla short.

Why everyone is bearish the dollar? How do we play that?

Gold leading the dollar, Platinum leading gold and what price levels are important there.

Global recession outside of the US.

Chris’s labored retail store as trading analogy, losses are operating costs.

Building better systems, better mental models and stepping away.

Alex was a sniper in the United States Marine Corps, and how that transfers over directly to trading.

Alex breaks down how he looks to manages his book, risk exposure, mistakes and waiting for the things that are obvious to find high expectancy positions.

Waiting for the one to two big macro opportunities per year.

Chris goes on, again, about the C-O-N-spiracy brokers have about getting successful people to think trading is easy and they should open accounts only to find the WORST User Interface/User Experience (UI/UX) platforms to trade on.

ROAD (Construction Partners) long position on an IPO from 2018. We dig in to some of the excellence in management running this company and the expected price value.

US Equity Household allocation is near all time highs.

And birds!
