Real VisionJuly 22, 2021
Noel Smith, CIO at Convex Asset Management, returns to Real Vision to dive into his core options trading strategies implemented at Convex Asset Management as well as his journey from prop trading to hedge funds. Smith argues that prop trading allowed him to tolerate greater risk in comparison to the steady returns required by outside funds in hedge funds. Smith walks through his 4 core strategies: VIX trading, Treasury volatility, volatility arbitrage, and dispersion trades. Smith disagrees with the consensus that trading is a zero-sum game and instead believes that following personal conviction will lead to success over time. Interviewed by Jack Farley on July 20, 2021.

About That Blockbuster Jobs Report ...
Equity futures tanked and Treasury yields spiked this morning after the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported the U.S. economy added 528,000 jobs in July, as investors priced in another 75-basis-point rate hike when the Federal Reserve meets in September. The major U.S. stock indexes rallied, rolled over, and rallied again into the afternoon, reflecting what remains the murkiest macro environment in recent memory. Meanwhile, on the increasingly fraught geopolitical front, China stepped up its military activity around Taiwan, sanctioned Nancy Pelosi, and cut off military and climate talks with the U.S. Maggie Lake welcomes Jeffrey Schulze, a director and an investment strategist at ClearBridge Investments, to the Daily Briefing to talk about today’s jobs report and what it means for the Fed, markets, and investors.

How Did Teddy Vallee Post a 21% Return in the First Quarter?
Teddy Vallee’s discretionary global macro hedge fund produced a 21% return in the first quarter of 2022 and has generated an average annualized return of 23% since 2018. Vallee, the founder and chief investment officer of Pervalle Global, joins Harry Melandri, an advisor at MI2 Partners, basically to answer one big question: How did you do it? “I've just been obsessed and focused on what the world looks like over the next 12 months” is Teddy’s short answer. The long answer begins on a soccer field, continues with a couple of concussions, and includes the development of a series of discretionary indicators, augmented by quantitative factors and technical analysis, that give him and his firm the flexibility to jump from asset class to asset class, from place to place, and invest successfully regardless of the global macro environment. Teddy talks to Harry about how that flexibility “has been a huge edge for us” and also explains why he thinks “inflation is going to fade much faster than the market thinks.” Recorded on August 3, 2022.

The Bank of England Goes Big and Gets Scary
The Bank of England announced its biggest rate hike since 1995 and forecast “long recession,” including five consecutive quarters of negative growth beginning in late 2022, as global central banks continue to take drastic measures to combat the worst inflation in nearly half a century. In the U.S., more data suggest the labor market is cooling off, as initial claims for unemployment insurance returned to pre-pandemic levels last week. The BoE’s problem may be more acute than the Federal Reserve’s because of the former’s proximity to Europe’s energy crisis. As Darius Dale tweeted today, there are positive catalysts out there, including the deal between Coinbase and BlackRock to make crypto trading easier for institutions. The question is how to interpret them. Darius, the founder and CEO of 42 Macro, joins Maggie Lake to talk about that and much more on today’s Daily Briefing.
