The macro outlook is still bleak: Inflation remains elevated, the probability of recession is rising, and the Federal Reserve continues to withdraw liquidity from financial markets. But investors are not pricing in higher future volatility. And many have no idea about, much less any interest in, buying convexity to hedge tail risk. It’s a signal to Nancy Davis, the chief investment officer of Quadratic Capital Management, and Kris Sidial, the co-CIO of The Ambrus Group, of widespread complacency. Nancy and Kris – experts in rate volatility and equity volatility, respectively – discuss investors’ assumptions about future volatility, as indicated by options pricing, and argue in favor of volatility itself as the best hedge in a new market regime.

This Is About the Fed's Volcker Worship
With global markets on the edge and investors concerned about a multitude of extant financial and potential political headwinds, Maggie Lake welcomes back Raoul Pal for today’s Real Vision Daily Briefing. “Are markets breaking?” sounds hyperbolic. But U.K. debt is being re-priced as if it’s issued by something less than a third-world country. And foreign-exchange markets “are presently screaming global depression, not recession,” as one prominent member of the FinTwit community put it. Maggie and Raoul talk about the global liquidity situation and how the Federal Reserve will respond to another mess of its own making. Indeed, as Raoul noted early Friday, “The central bank experiment of Volcker worship in a massively indebted economy is on its last legs in the coming month or two.” We want to hear from you – please share your questions in the chat!

Who Will Rule in Rome?
Italy’s snap general election on Sunday, September 25, is likely to result in a government led by the far-right Fratelli d’Italia (“Brothers of Italy”) party. Major issues include the country’s response to the energy crisis and its relationship with Russia as well as its very future in the European Union. Real Vision’s Andreas Steno Larsen welcomes Andrea Paltrinieri, associate professor of banking and finance at Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore, for an up-close perspective on Italy’s efforts to deal with the energy crisis and how the issue factors into the domestic political debate. Patrinieri also talks about the importance of natural gas to Italian electricity production, whether a new government will make a deal with Vladimir Putin, and the realistic prospects for the “Italexit” movement.
