    OI05: Is Trading Fewer Markets Actually Better? ft. Richard Liddle & Gareth Abbot

    OI05: Is Trading Fewer Markets Actually Better? ft. Richard Liddle & Gareth Abbot

    In this episode, Moritz Seibert speaks with Gareth Abbot and Richard Liddle from Bowmoor Capital, a trend following firm based in the UK. Gareth and Richard explain why they decided to go against many trend followers and limit their investment universe to 21 markets – a “compact” portfolio – and why additional markets would likely dilute the return stream they aim to generate. We also speak about their portfolio construction process which includes the combination of 16 systems and results in what they call “smart pyramiding” in and out of positions. Finally, we touch on dynamic position sizing.

    GM57: Navigating the Next Decade ft. Kiril Sokoloff

    Legendary strategist Kiril Sokoloff, founder and Chairman of 13D Research, joins Alan Dunne in this episode for a whirlwind tour of where Kiril sees the risks and opportunities in global markets over the next decade. Kiril outlines the reasons behind his belief that the secular bull market in bonds is over and a secular bear market is now underway. They discuss implications of climate change decarbonisation, the ageing global economy, rising debt levels and the growing risk of a significant derailment of the global economy from protectionism. Kiril explains why he is bullish oil, copper, uranium and gold and why gold mining stocks are the cheapest asset on the planet and his top contrarian call. They discuss China’s current economic challenges and why Kiril remains upbeat on the longer-term outlook for China and Chinese stocks but why there may be even greater opportunities in India.

    GM56: Structural Shifts - A Threat to the Economy? ft. Frances Donald

    GM56: Structural Shifts - A Threat to the Economy? ft. Frances Donald

    Frances Donald, Chief Economist and Strategist at Manulife Investment Management, joins Alan Dunne to discuss how the drivers of the economy and inflation are undergoing a structural shift and what this means for the economic outlook. We hear why Frances expects a recession in the US economy in 2024 and why the risks to her forecasts are on the downside. Frances outlines where she currently sees tactical opportunities in fixed income markets and why she expects equity markets to face headwinds as investors start to see “bad news as bad news” this year. The conversations delves into the big shift underway in the global economy, becoming more supply driven than demand driven and the implications this will have for inflation, monetary policy and fiscal policy over the medium term.

Great podcast for any type of investor

Great podcast with in-depth and open discussions and refrained from the hype that so many other investment podcasts suffer from.

Even if you are not a trend following enthousiast, I would say it is still worthwhile your time. This is one of the few investment podcast I listen to on a weekly basis.

Zorgkennis ,

Great podcast, but..

Great podcast and content, but please don’t use the word “trendfollowing” every 10 sentences. For me it’s annoying and not necessary to describe what the point is.

You need this in your trading life

Great dedication from Niels to consistently produce this podcast, sharing knowledge and information of a this key investment strategy.
