Episode 19: Mark Dow of Behavioral Macro

Mark Dow has been a favorite follow of mine on Twitter for a long time. His global macro perspective is directly in line with the way I view the world. We come from very different backgrounds, however. Mark worked for the U.S. Treasury Department and was in charge of Emerging Markets in the early 90s. After that he was a sovereign analyst at a Mutual Fund before running money for a Global Macro Hedge Fund in New York City. Today, Mark runs a Family Office from southern California and recently launched a Private Twitter Account that you can subscribe to called Behavioral Macro. In this conversation, Mark talks about the current environment for stocks, interest rates and the rotation into emerging markets and base metals. He brings a disciplined process and approach to the market that I’ve respected for many years. I really enjoyed this conversation with someone who I consider to be one of the smartest guys in the room.

Episode 18: Daniel Crosby, Author of The Laws Of Wealth

Studying the behavior of market participants is something that we do on a daily basis, whether we recognize it or not. Especially as Technical Analysts who focus on changes in price at very specific levels, understanding the psychology behind why investors are behaving in certain ways is part of that process. Dr. Daniel Crosby is an excellent resource for investors looking to learn more about themselves and investor psychology. In this conversation we discuss the cognitive behavior traits seen on a daily basis from investors with elevated levels of stress due to active positions in the market. Recognizing these flaws is step 1 in our journey to learn more about ourselves so we can be in a position to make the best decisions possible in order to succeed. This is a podcast episode that I have wanted to record for a while now because I think it’s a good breakup from the more traditional market analysis and commentary. I hope this conversations inspires you to take a step back and become more aware of what you’re doing and why you’re doing it. I believe the more self-aware we are, the more efficiently and intelligently we can move forward as market participants.

Daniel Crosby, Ph.D. is the Author of The Laws of Wealth and The Behavioral Investor. I encourage you to check them both out!

Episode 16: Joseph Fahmy, Managing Director of Zor Capital

Joe Fahmy is a trader whose work I’ve respected for nearly a decade when I was first introduced to him and his investing style. What makes Joe special in my opinion is his awareness of when to press his long positions and be aggressive, while at the same time incorporating a more neutral or defensive approach whenever the market dictates. This discipline is not always easy, but he does it well. Joe and I have known each other for a long time and the conversations we’ve had over meals or drinks is a large part of the inspiration to start this podcast. Joe Fahmy is one of the premier voices for the importance of relative strength analysis throughout an investing process. In this podcast episode we discuss the current U.S. Stock Market environment, sentiment and some select areas where he is currently seeing rotation and strength. This was a great conversations with someone who I consider to be one of the smartest guys in the room! I hope you enjoy.
