The Evolution Of Becoming A Technician w/ Brian G @alphacharts

On this episode of the podcast, Steve Strazza and I sit down with Brian G, who many of you will recognize as @AlphaCharts on Twitter.

I’ve been following Brian for many years and love a lot of the work he puts out. It was really fun hearing his story about how he became a technician.

It isn’t something that happens overnight, that’s for sure. It’s a process.

First we get into the evolution of become a Technical Analyst, and then we dive into what we’re doing about it in the current environment.

Hope you enjoy!

On this episode of the podcast, I sit down with Ed Clissold, Chief U.S. Strategist at Ned Davis Research.

I’ve been a big fan of Ed’s work for a long time, not to mention Ned Davis is one of my personal heroes.

The work they do over there has been inspiring to me throughout my entire career. So as you can imagine, it was so fun and such a pleasure to chat with Ed.

We talk about Market Breadth, Sector Trends, Momentum and Seasonality.

If you have any exposure whatsoever in the market, or even thinking about putting on exposure, then this is the episode for you!

Why Does Fibonacci Work?

You guys know that I use Fibonacci levels to help us identify targets and manage risk.

And you’ve all seen it work, with your own eyes, for many years. I have too, of course, as one of the gang here calculating these levels every day.

But I’ve never quite understood WHY it works.

How come these numbers keep showing up all over Nature. Why do the prices of stocks and other assets keep respecting these levels?

When I get asked, I don’t have an answer.

But if there’s anyone I’m going to ask, it’s gonna be Bart.

So that’s what I did. And figured why not share this with all of you?

This was a lot of fun!

Talking About Humans w/ David Keller

On this week’s episode of the podcast, I sit down with David Keller to talk about all things behavioral finance. David is one of my favorite guys to talk to about the subject, so I reached out to him and said, “Dave, come on the pod and let’s talk about humans”.

He happily agreed and so we hit the ground running talking about Anchoring Bias, Loss Aversion, Risk Management, Supply and Demand Dynamics and Market Sentiment.

This wasn’t just an academic endeavor. We also discussed current markets, price trends, momentum, breadth and Dave’s favorite trade for the rest of 2021.

I think you’re really going to enjoy this one. I certainly did!

Two Technicians Talking Charts w/ Ian McMillan

In this podcast episode I sit down with Ian McMillan to talk charts and answer the question: Why Technical Analysis?

Ian makes some good points about Financial Advisors who “buy and hold”, that you can often find at the golf course. He’s always striving to be the opposite of that.

When it comes to the market, we dive right in to talk market internals, major trends, Gold, Energy and Bitcoin.

Ian and I have known each other for years so it’s always fun to catch up and see what’s on his mind. Enjoy!

Fixed Income, Commodities & Currencies | My Conversation w/ Paul Ciana, CMT Bank of America Merrill Lynch

This is a fun one. I got to sit down with Paul Ciana to talk about all things Fixed Income, Commodities and Currencies. Paul is now the Chief Global FICC Technical Strategist and Director of Research at Bank of America Merrill Lynch. But in the early days, him and I used to study for our CMTs together back in 2006.

What’s nice about this is that in his current position, and for 10 years at Bloomberg prior to his 5 years at BofA, he’s had the opportunity to speak to many of the largest portfolio managers in the world. I want to know what he’s learned from all those conversations!

Paul always gives great perspective and as you know, the macro view carries a big weighting throughout our process. So this episode really hit home.

I took advantage and just hit him with all my favorite questions and topics in the FICC world. And he just chuckled and happily answered most of them.

This was great! I hope you enjoy this as much as I did!
