Unlock the secrets of macro trading with trading maestro Jonathan Matthews, as he shares the wisdom gleaned from his illustrious career at Brevin Howard. I"m your host, Michael Gayed, Publisher of The Lead-Lag Report, and in this episode, we delve into Jonathan"s transition from handling equity derivatives and FX to revolutionizing the way retail subscribers view the markets with his "Super Macro" analysis. Our exchange is sprinkled with tales of volatility and the rare, golden moments that define a trader"s journey, offering you a front-row seat to the thought processes of an industry veteran. The Fed"s recent mixed messages have traders and analysts alike scratching their heads—what"s their endgame?

We examine the peculiar timing of rate cut speculations considering global financial uncertainties and the upcoming U.S. election, giving listeners an edge in understanding these cryptic strategies. To cap off, we probe the U.S. economy"s surprising resilience to the Fed’s rate hikes and what this means for inflation control efforts. The conversation transitions to the broader market, where we discuss vulnerabilities and the capacity for potential deleveraging events, contrasting current market conditions with those in the run-up to the 2008 crisis. Plus, we shine a light on the curious case of precious metals amidst a skeptical market. Join us for a session packed with expertise to help you navigate the tumultuous waters of finance.
