Today I spoke to a man that started at the Bank of Montreal on the investor line desk before he graduated from college. Moved to Chicago to work in the Demark pit and then moved to Toronto to work at RBC in charge of the equity index derivates book. Now he is an independent trader that writes a fantastic blog called The Macro Tourist, his name is Kevin Muir.

I had a fascinating conversation with Kevin. We talked about some of the reasons he believes the stock market is rallying and Kevin entertains the idea that the next move in the market may be a melt up instead of a meltdown. We talked about why people tend to boo bullish market blog posts and praise people for writing bearish market pieces.
We talked about Bond risk parity and he explains what Paul Tudor Jones and Ray Dalio said about it. Not to mention he thinks that Axe from billions would have had bond risk parity! Finally we talked about a scenario that may end the calm bond markets.
Kevin is an extremely smart guy whos blog I truly enjoy reading for insight on the markets. It was great to get a chance to speak with today and I know you will learn a lot from today’s show with Kevin. Thank you all for listening and please and enjoy this episode.
