#reflexivity between #bubbles vs #antibubbles once again distorting markets

Artificially low #VIX forces quant strategies (trend, risk parity, vol target) to buy #SPX, squeezes weak shorts

#insurance tends to be cheapest when we need it the most

Anti-bubble framework 👇
1) Embrace #volatiltiy. Don’t fight it.

2) avoid #leverage, your enemy responsible for financial and emotional distress.

3) Seek negative #correlation and avoid risk of false #diversification. Remember that a portfolio with many holdings is not necessarily diversified.
4) Seek #Emotional indifference. If your trading makes you overly happy or sad, you are trading too big.

5) #Rebalance Portfolio = sell high, buy cheap. Now is time to trim risk, add insurance

6) #compound on capital preservation. Goalkeeper most important player in any team.

In this little story I summarize how Covid, Supply Chain, Debt, Wages, Inflation, a Eecession, Insolvency and an aging population come together to form a common solution: Crypto Assets

1) ...
So much is happening in the world. War, High #inflation, Covid, #recession, insolvancy, a debt bubble and Supply Chain problems.

All of these causes have a large impact on the world economy and therefore on your portfolio, which makes it important to understand what is going on. Image
The main consequence:

An nation on the verge of collapse and a debt bubble around the world.

As Ray Dalio said

'A nation in its last effort of strength is hugely in debt, there are internal wealth disparities and printing money seems to many to be the solution, but it is not'. Image

One word @CaitlinLong_: GREED.

You’ve been spot on. I struggled w/ noticing the same issue of #derivative and #TradFi games infecting #bitcoin & #Crypto over the last 1.5yrs or so.

Structurally it was quite easy to see. But...

/1 👉🧵 on a few thoughts.
you have to know how these things have played out in other markets as well as how intermarket relationships work within markets in general. And, you never really know how the change will play out. Especially, in new asset classes like #DigitalAssets.

It felt like most in the space chose not to acknowledge the changes & continue to pump the narrative of NGU and BTFD with little regard for what’s *actually* happening w/ the fundamental picture. Time horizon matters. All participants have different goals.

Time for a 🧵 on two charts (at the end) that seem to tell an interesting #Bitcoin story.

For several yrs @CaitlinLong_ has openly discussed the potential negative impact of #rehypothecation of #bitcoin by banks, wall street, hedge funds & the broader #tradfi community.
@saylor has discussed and shown the need for sound money and the value that having a savings mechanism brings to the system.

@JeffBooth has shed light on the fact that #deflation isn’t such a bad thing when #technology is actually making our lives better and costs cheaper.
@saifedean taught the 🌏 the importance of time, effort, and energy & the value that living by the #Bitcoin Standard can bring to individuals and countries across the globe.

@FossGregfoss has done a phenomenal job helping to #educate on the benefits of owning #volatile #assets.

According to a @FastCompany #article & an @indeed #poll, in the #techindustry, I'm old.

And not just a little old, a LOT old. I've been in #tech longer than many of my colleagues have been alive!

But that's OK & here's why (🧵):

1. You can't gain experience from a book (or website or app or ...)

The only way you gain #experience is by doing things over time.

That's it!

No shortcuts!

No cheat codes!

And I've had the time to gain the experience which shows on my #resume & portfolio.
2. I grew up before the Internet!

The Internet's biggest #advantage can also be its biggest failure. "Just Google it!" has become the modern mantra because it's easier to find a #solution than to figure it out.

My ability to problem solve is becoming rare! And marketable!

I've been studying Alberta political culture & public opinion for over a decade. I've learned that a lot of Albertans feel personally & collectively "left behind" by their governments, and by the pace of economic & social change that is challenging the "Alberta way of life." +
Acknowledegment is important. The continual airing of grievances by politicians who claim to be "standing up for Albertans" may feel good at the time. +
So, too, might spending billions of dollars on failed pipeline bets, war rooms, and public inquiries to identify and target "the bad guys."+

🧵I love #football

Have done since the 1980's ⚽️

Nowadays though, the off-field stuff seems to get as much coverage & column inches as the game itself 🗞️📺📱

Competition isn't just about trophies - it's about eyeballs, soft power, geo-politics, PR and #money

Quick tale...
Did you see that news report from the #US this week about the #billionaire financier #TomBarrack being arrested? ($250m bail)

In the weird (but fun) world we live in, that incident ties to #NewcastleUnited & the #PremierLeague

Say what?! 🧐

#FollowTheMoney #Networks #Power 💸
We have;

- Billionaires acting as back-channel diplomats (💰)
- Political actors orchestrating things but pretending they're not
- Qatar buy rights to #EPL for region
- Saudi pirate them #AJ #BeIn #BeOut
- SA try to buy NUFC

(1\13) The next time someone says #crypto is the one with #leverage tell them they have ZERO understanding of the existing legacy banking & financial system. Historically banks were required to hold 10-13% in reserves. Federal Reserve moved it to 0% on March 15, 2020 $EGLD $CEL Image
(2\13)… When I used to teach banking I would have my students perform #UBPR which are essentially an analytical tool for assessing banks health & performance. NEVER has the banking system allowed 0% reserve. Let me
(3\13) give you a mathematical example of how #FractionalReserves are essentially implicit leverage. If banks historically had to hold say 10% than the way you would understand how much leverage is by 1*1/R. You deposit $100 *(1/R) R=10% = $1,000, so they can lend out $900 for

Lots of people asking me to provide a summary of yesterdays Wigglesworth Memorial Lecture. In the lecture I discussed 10 lessons that I have learned about Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) through 20 years of applied #humanfactors research. Here they are!
Lesson 1. A human error lens is useless and can be dangerous. I talked here about how using the term in OHS can be misleading and prevent learning. Errors are a consequence of systemic issues, not a cause of anything!
Lesson 2. All accidents/safety compromising incidents are caused by multiple interacting contributory factors. There is no such thing as a root cause

1) I think this is a prudent moment to talk about leverage and #BTC ;

Most new traders use leverage to increase their position size,

Experienced traders use leverage to increase their buying power.

Here's a breakdown;
2) When planning a trade, one of the first steps is deciding how much to risk.

The most widely accepted method for determining risk is to use a % of your total account balance,

eg. $10,000 account, risk less than <3% per trade = <$300 max loss per trade;
3) Most new traders ignore this, and go straight to "how much can I buy with the leverage at 10x?, 20x?, 100x?, etc.

Where as experienced traders use an amount where the max loss on that position represents their predetermined risk per trade amount;

#Fed Put & Financial Conditions Index (#FCI):

#Powell: “…would be concerned by…persistent tightening in financial conditions…”

🚩Just-for-fun graphic: Fed Put - Market’s search for Put’s Strike Price = Fed’s intervention threshold

🚩#DiveIn: FCI & Macro

So why learn about FCI?
#1 Fed tracks FCI
#2 FCI affects GDP/Output

Traditional Keynesian => s/t Interest Rates affect GDP

Goldman’s Hatzius/Stehn argue (2018 paper) Interest Rates first affect FCI (empirically mild relationship) & FCI then strongly affects GDP (Graphic)

Financial Conditions Index (FCI)?
▶️One # to capture state of conditions in financial/banking system
▶️weighted average of indicators of interest rates, exchange rate, credit spreads & equity valuations
▶️each indicator expressed relative to its avrg & scaled by its stdev

Financial spread betting might be a tax efficient and the right instrument to use in the UK and Ireland but witiout knowledge it can be disasterous.
Spread betting for beginners is a good start and then the learning curve.
#spreadbetting #trading… Image
Did you know that financial spread betting is tax free? It means you've got to pay no tax... no Capital Gains Tax, No Stamp Duty, No tax at all.
#tax #trade…
Financial spread betting envolves trading on leverage.
Yes, it could be good and benefit you but once you lose control of the leverage you might run into serious troubles. Make sure you treat leverage with respect and remember... it can hurt.

This thread is to cover one of the most important topics for those involved in financial spread betting or any other form of trading.
Let's be honest and see 3 most common reasons why many lose and what part spread betting plays there.
#spreadbetting… Image
1. Over-leveraging.
Probably the most common mistake out-there - don't over leverage; yes, potential returns might be tempting but you want to use spread betting as a trading platform rather than a gambling one so keep your leverage in check.
2. Over-trading.
Over-trading is another common mistake novice spread bettors make. Don't trade just for the sake of trading but spend more time learning and analysing your potential positions. More learning = more profit.

* Some practical tips on #PersonalFinance & #Investment *

Met someone who lost heavily in markets( sizeable amt) which makes me write this thread .

DISCLAIMER : There are exceptions always.However the chances of us being in that exception is rare !🤷 Hence the thread.

Pls DON'T ENTER markets without ensuring you have
- An Emergency Fund in place
- A good comprehensive Life & Health insurance policy for all .
- Term Insurance ( especially if taken a house on loan)

More details given in the old tweet.

Consider investing in markets as money locked in ( like in a PPF account) for a few years atleast & THEN decide how much money you CAN AFFORD TO LOCK IN.
Else we may have to sell ( even a good)stock at lower price BECAUSE we need money urgently .
