Volatility, Smart Beta, Ancient Chinese Philosophy and Poker

 Chris chats with Macro-Ops Co-Founder Tyler Kling. 

We discuss how Tyler got into the finance world out of school at a family office, then moving on to trading for himself. 

Tyler is heavily focused on the Volatility Complex and talks about a call he put out on VXX and VIX near the December low’s in the markets and what that looks like now. 

We touch on the indecision currently in the markets and Chris’s short trade setup and contingency plan on the S&P this week.  

This week Tyler wrote about a Classical Chinese text from thousands of years ago, the Zhuangzi and how it applies to traders today. Bleak stuff indeed! 

Check out the article here:

Optionality, finding smart beta with a macro overlay and looking to get paid by the market for that risk. Getting out of the reactive state and making the best decisions when they are the most obvious. 

Then finally we get to Poker!
