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. Recorded on September 16, 2022.

They Used To Say the Sun Never Sets on the British Empire
We’ve seen what could very well be an act of war perpetrated beneath the Baltic Sea. We’re watching the crumbling in real time of one of the world’s oldest, longest-standing economic, political, and financial pillars. And Hurricane Ian is bearing down on a densely populated coastal region extremely vulnerable to storm surge, high winds, and other attendant threats. But the three major U.S. equity indexes are ripping higher! Andreas Steno Larsen opens today’s Daily Briefing with a discussion of the U.K. and the extent to which its fiscal, monetary, and pension catastrophe could infect the rest of the world. With “sabotage” and “contagion” and “Cat 4” rising and “inflation” fading as the market’s main theme, Darius Dale joins to talk about what, if anything, today’s rally means in the bigger picture. We want to hear from you too – please share your questions in the chat!

Something Is Brewing in the Baltic Sea
The word “sabotage” is in heavy rotation today, as the world wonders why natural gas is leaking from two pipelines that run under the Baltic Sea from Russia to Germany. This can only make things worse, on a basic energy supply-and-demand level as well as for the more complex geopolitical landscape. The major U.S. equity indexes opened in positive territory but turned negative early in the trading day, as yields continued to rise. Andreas Steno Larsen welcomes Tony Greer, the founder of TG Macro, to talk about the global energy market and what these mysterious leaks portend. We also hear from Suriya Jayanti, the co-founder and managing director at decarbonization and renewables consultancy Eney LLC, about who holds the leverage in Europe’s energy crisis. Watch the full conversation between Andreas Steno Larsen and Suriya Jayanti here: https://www.realvision.com/shows/make-or-break-energy-crisis/videos/we-have-to-own-our-energy-crisis-now-qp22?source_collection=852d5cce52bd4c829fc3d84de72c55b8. And please drop your questions in the chat! We apologize for the technical issues that caused the interruption of Tony’s video feed during today’s Daily Briefing. Although the video does drop out for a few moments, the audio is good throughout the show. And thank you for watching.

Global Yields Continue To Climb
The British pound reached a record low, the People’s Bank of China stepped up its support for the yuan, the Bank of Japan defended its own intervention in defense of the yen, and every major currency in the world traded lower against the U.S. dollar today. Meanwhile, yields are spiking, particularly at the short end of the curve, and bonds are in their first bear market in 76 years. Should we be on the lookout for something big to break? Is the strong U.S. dollar going to cause a crisis for the rest of the world? Gordon Johnson, the founder of GLJ Research, joins Maggie Lake to talk about recent price action. We also hear from Jim Bianco about why inflation has probably peaked. Watch the full first video from our new Make or Break series featuring Jim and Raoul here: https://rvtv.io/3BPr7ph.
