#48: Jim Stack On Charting A Course Through Stock Market Rapids
Jim Stack has been assiduously studying markets in an effort to develop and hone a full-cycle investment discipline since he was first introduced to stock market risk back in the 1973-74 bear market. That experience instilled in him the modicum of skepticism needed to successfully navigate major market turning points, both tops and bottoms, as well as an infectious enthusiasm for investment research that still drives him today. It also set him on a journey that would eventually see him founding InvesTech Research, one of the most successful investment newsletters in the industry, and later Stack Financial Management, an SEC-registered advisory firm with billions under management. In this episode (recorded in Whitefish, Montana), Jim shares the key stories that shaped him as an investor and the lessons learned along the way. He also discusses how he developed some of the major indicators that drive his investment process and how they currently influence his approach to the market.

This has allowed him and his firm, Evergreen Gavekal, to thrive even in the most precarious of market environments. In this episode (recorded in Coeur D'Alene, Idaho), David discusses how he developed his investment methodology over the course of his career, sharing some of the key tactics and techniques he has come to employ and how he is putting them to use today.

In this conversation (recorded in Sun Valley, Idaho), Kiril discusses how he developed and honed his investment approach over the course of his extensive and illustrious career and how he is using it today to isolate the most valuable macro signals in the markets.

#45: Michael Oliver On The 'Massive Momentum Structure' In The Stock Market
One thing I try to do with this podcast, is to find people who are taking a truly unique approach to analyzing the markets, those taking the "financial road less traveled," as I like to call it. Well, Michael Oliver is surely one of those. There is traditional technical analysis, the study of charts which has been around for as long as markets, and then there is Michael's, "momentum structural analysis," which is an entirely original way of studying price patterns and trends. It was almost exactly two years ago, I first got the chance to interview Michael about his methods. In this conversation (recorded in Fort Collins, Colorado), Michael goes into even more depth about his analytical techniques and what they are saying about the markets today.

#44: Julian Brigden On The Fed's 'Impossible Trinity'
Julian Brigden is a master of models. In putting together his macro theses, which have presciently called major moves in everything from inflation and the dollar to the most popular manias in the stock market, he carefully studies inter-market relationships and correlations to come up with a framework grounded in real data rather than arcane theories and formulas. This practical and highly-refined approach has served him well for the ten years he has been running MI2 Partners and for years prior to that. In this episode, (recorded in Breckenridge, Colorado), Julian discusses how he developed this uniquely insightful methodology and how he uses it today to inform his own trading and that of his many institutional and retail clients.
#43: Diego Parrilla On Appreciating The Opportunity Set In ‘Antibubbles’
It was just over two years ago Diego Parrilla first joined me on the podcast to discuss his framework for analyzing financial bubbles and what he calls, "antibubbles." You may have noticed that the topic of bubbles and antibubbles has come up in both of my recent interviews with James Davolos, on the topic of inflation, and Adam Rozencwaig, on the mania in green energy stocks. Considering how relevant Diego's framework is to the current market environment and how dramatically the macro backdrop has changed since we last spoke, I thought it would be an opportune time to have him back for a follow up conversation. In this episode, Diego shares his views on the misconceptions underpinning all sorts of asset bubbles at present and how a paradigm shift in inflation threatens to play the role of pin to each of them. He also discusses why he believes cryptocurrencies are, in fact, a bubble and how they have created another opportunity in what he sees as one of the oldest and most enduring of antibubbles: gold.
