    Beware an 'Inflation Head Fake'

    Beware an 'Inflation Head Fake'

    The chief investment officer of Morgan Stanley Wealth Management has a warning for investors who are chasing the latest rally in stocks: Don’t get too excited about a potential peak in inflation after the consumer price index cooled off a bit in July.

    Lisa Shalett joined this week’s episode of the “What Goes Up” podcast to explain the firm’s cautious stance toward the market, and how CPI is still elevated enough that the Federal Reserve needs to continue lifting rates aggressively. “The direction is correct, but the levels are wrong,” she says of the latest inflation data.

    New Risk: Self-Fulfilling Recession Calls

    New Risk: Self-Fulfilling Recession Calls

    Mark Zandi, who has been an economist for more than three decades, says he’s never seen so many people convinced that a recession is imminent. And while he believes the US economy can still avoid an economic downturn, sentiment is so poor that it poses its own risks. Zandi, the chief economist at Moody’s Analytics, joined the “What Goes Up” podcast to discuss his outlook after government data this week showed the highest level of inflation in almost 41 years. “I talk to CEOs, CFOs, investors, friends, family—to the person, they think we're going into recession. I've never seen anything like it,” Zandi says. “When sentiment is so fragile, it’s not going to take a whole lot to push us in.”

    How Amateurs Lost Billions on Options

    How Amateurs Lost Billions on Options

    During the day-trading craze that erupted amid the Covid-19 pandemic’s lockdowns, market professionals repeatedly warned a new flock of Reddit-reading, Robinhood-using retail investors that equity options were risky, and that bold bets in that market could end badly. It turns out their caution was spot on.

    Day-traders managed to lose more than $1 billion during the bull market, with the bill climbing to $5 billion when the cost of doing business with market-makers is factored in, according to Svetlana Bryzgalova, Anna Pavlova and Taisiya Sikorskaya of the London Business School. The three researchers joined the “What Goes Up” podcast to talk about the findings of their study, and discuss what retail traders need to know about options trading.

Liking this more and more

This isn’t perfect - but the guests are generally worth listening to and there are occasionally (maybe often) valuable reminders of sense.
In this area - that’s a 5 star review.
Update Jan 2021. I’m beginning to regard the two presenters as friends. I’ve been in lockdown far too long.
Informative. Entertaining. Gentle wit. Hard to do this better.

Really enjoyable…but the adverts are really irritating

I really enjoy this podcasts, the guests are generally excellent, engaging and relevant and the topics are easily digestible. My only criticism is the Bloomberg adverts that are in the podcast, they’re repetitive, annoying and excessive.

Great but compromised a little by advertorial

Great but compromised a little by advertorial. I recommend some signposting of this. The recent crypto currency and ETF episodes felt like the interviewees were plugging their own products.
