Senior editor, Ash Bennington, invites managing editor, Roger Hirst, to take a deep dive into options to gain clarity on what this market's greatest, current mover is. Roger argues that, contrary to conventional thought, currently the institutional "whales" are less influential than the retail investors, who are driving the options markets and have made themselves out to be the "megalodon." He breaks down how retail investors are contributing to momentum through options, how "air pockets" in equity markets and contract expiries are linked, and how rising volatility will continue to increase "air pocket" risks. Roger then elaborates on why he believes these aren't structural risks as of yet, but rather that insolvency risks are more near-term by observing how zombification of large-cap companies is on the rise due to misallocated capital and QE infinity. Ash and Roger then finish off their conversation by exploring the renewed risks to a clean Brexit. Real Vision reporter Haley Draznin analyzes at the correlation between retail sales out this morning and the performance in the market. She also looks at the surge in IPOs this week, including Snowflake's debut today.

Daily Briefing - September 28, 2020
Real Vision senior editor Ash Bennington hosts managing editor Ed Harrison to make sense of the biggest 3-day breakout in equities since April. Through the lens of Ed’s most recent piece in "Credit Writedowns." Ed and Ash explain why low interest rates tend to make growth stocks more valuable relative to value stocks, and why the recent rally in small-cap value stocks might be short-lived. Ed looks forward to his interview with hedge fund legend Leon Cooperman, which airs tomorrow, on Tuesday, September 29. The pair also discuss discount rates, portfolio rebalancing, and endogenous credit creation.

Julian Brigden -- Markets, Monetary Policy, and Society: A Major Inflection Point
We kicked off week one of “Has Everything Changed?” with Raoul’s take on the question. Here to kick off an equally exciting week two is Julian Brigden, founder of MI2 Partners. As Real Vision Pro members already know, Julian and Raoul rarely agree on everything, and in this interview, you’ll get a completely different perspective. Brigden argues that the biggest effects from COVID are not course-altering changes, but rather the acceleration of the inevitable. He explains how markets and even society as a whole have been brought to a major inflection point and provides his view on the assets that will help investors come out on top when the dust finally settles. Filmed on September 23, 2020.
