The End Game Ep. 15: Jim Stack - Preview

February 14, 2021

In this special preview, Grant and Bill welcome Jim Stack of InvesTech Research to The End Game for a fascinating conversation about how Jim sees The End Game playing out.

From the outcome desired this time around by the Federal reserve to the results the last time they blew an epic, speculative bubble in the late-1990s, Jim explains where his technical signals suggest we are in the process, what he’s looking for to suggest the party may finally be winding up and why tenure in the investment industry is going to be hugely important in the months to come.

Jim runs through his proprietary indicators, explains why he pays little attention to sentiment indicators and offers some hope for a smooth transition from the everything bubble to something resembling normalcy (whatever that is these days)...

The Grant Williams Podcast - Short Shrift

The Grant Williams Podcast - Short Shrift

January 29, 2021

Grant invites two accomplished shortsellers, Marc Cohodes and Bill Fleckenstein to discuss the wild gyrations in equity markets in recent days as a coordinated move by retail investors to attack 'shortsellers' and inflict pain upon Wall Street proves to be, in some ways at least, a roaring success.

There are, however, nuances to this story which are perhaps not broadly understood and are in need of a little illumination - most notably, the difference between 'shortsellers' and 'highly leveraged hedge fund shorts'.

Bill, Marc and Grant discuss the important differences between the two, the events that have transpired and the potential path from here as well as some thoughts on why and how the system is broken, where the anger of retail investors ought to perhaps more accurately be directed and why this growing revolution may be an important turning point...

Super Terrific Happy Hour Ep. 9 - David Rosenberg: I’ve Never Met A Rude Canadian

January 28, 2021

Stephanie and Grant welcome David Rosenberg of Rosenberg Research to The Super Terrific Happy Hour for a fun-filled conversation about the disconnect between the economy and risk assets, the probability Rosie places on the return of significant inflation and much, much more.

From the negligible likely impact of the supposed positives of Covid life on overall GDP to the importance of having robust econometric models and understanding the dramatic changes to spending and saving habits by U.S. consumers, Rosie offers a masterful breakdown of the most important factors to be considered when assessing where we go from here.

It looks as though Q3 is setting up to be a very, very important watershed...

The Grant Williams Podcast - Both Sides Of The Coin: A Civilized Bitcoin Debate

The Grant Williams Podcast - Both Sides Of The Coin: A Civilized Bitcoin Debate

January 24, 2021

Grant welcomes Mike Green of Logica Funds and Nic Carter of Castle Island Ventures & CoinMetrics for a civilized debate about Bitcoin (with a little Tether chat thrown in for good measure).

With so much polarization around this topic, it seemed like a good opportunity to try and flesh out the case both for and against bitcoin with two men who've become vocal proponents for their respective causes.

What followed was a wonderful exchange of ideas with both Mike and Nic demonstrating precisely why each side of the debate values their opinion so highly.

Will  any minds be changed by this? It's highly unlikely... but let's see, shall we?

Among the topics covered in this extremely rare and endlessly fascinating conversation are Paul's thoughts on the importance of understanding markets are little more than mass experiments in psychology, the fallacy of 'sitting passively', the creation of value for clients and the corner into which the Fed and other central banks have painted themselves.

James Aitken makes a very welcome return to The End Game to take a look back at 2020 and a look forward to 2021.

Where did he get things wrong and why? What went according to his forecasts, and, most importantly, what has this turbulent year taught him that will help him in the future?

From the dangers of 'Big Dicking it' to Robert Shiller's nasty case of FOMO to the curious birth of the Equity Vigilantes, James shows precisely why his thoughts are so indispensable to his clients.
