The Grinch Wants Your Christmas: The Supply Chain Mess

Real VisionNovember 30, 2021
The holiday season is imminent, and supply chains are still in disarray. Weston Nakamura explores the supply chain constraints with trucker Brad Snyder and freight logistics software company Tranzport CEO David Woldenberg. In a back-and-forth dialogue between two veterans of the logistics industry, Snyder and Woldenberg lay out what is going wrong in U.S. domestic supply chains on a ground level, discussing the “perfect storm” of trucker shortages, rising oil prices, and shipping bottlenecks that are leaving shelves empty and prices soaring. Nakamura and Woldernberg speculate on using container rates to forecast consumer behavior. Woldenberg also offers a glimpse of a possible future of diminished global supply chains where U.S. consumers shift their habits towards domestically produced goods, like wine produced in Southern California, rather than importing it. Recorded on November 19, 2021.

The Market Doesn't Have to Crash
The University of Michigan preliminary sentiment index for July ticked up to 55.1 from 51.5 in June, as a sub-measure of consumer expectations reached a three-month high. And U.S. stocks continue to surge on the hope inflation has peaked. News from overseas continues to reflect an unsettled, at best, macroeconomic environment, with the U.K. economy shrinking for the first time since the pandemic lockdowns of 2020, water levels on the Rhone River falling to a critical mark due to historic drought, and credit growth in China slowing sharply on sluggish demand. Real Vision co-founder and CEO Raoul Pal joins Andreas Steno Larsen for today’s Daily Briefing to talk about inflation, recent economic data, risk appetite amid what remains a fraught geo-macro moment, and why this might be the most hated equity market rally ever. Is it possible that stocks have already seen their lows and that this rally has real legs?

"How to Actually Trade the Yen"
Weston Nakamura is accepting a challenge from the Real Vision Community in the aftermath of his previous piece, “The Landing of the Rising Yen?” RV Members want to understand the different strategies for expressing Tokyo-based Weston Nakamura’s thesis about the Japanese yen. Getting back to his trading roots and looking at various instruments and structures, some of which are highly unconventional and don’t even touch foreign exchange markets, Weston explains exactly how to get directional exposure to the yen in the context of personal risk tolerance, time horizons, and investing objectives. This is not specific trading advice but is part of an effort to answer your questions and drive this conversation forward.

Is a Soft Landing a Pipe Dream?
U.S. stocks surged again this morning on news the Producer Price Index fell by 0.5% in July, the first monthly decline since April 2020. At the same time, producer prices were up 9.8% year over year. And multiple Federal Reserve officials said tightening would continue until inflationary pressures completely ease. “Stocks are going up,” notes Harry Melandri, an advisor at Mi2 Partners and the host of Real Vision’s The Next Big Trade podcast, “and that doesn’t seem consistent with Fed statements.” That we need inflation to have peaked and to no longer be a problem does not mean, of course, that it’s happened. To that end, we hear from emerging markets investing pioneer Mark Mobius about reasons to start nibbling amid what’s still a bear market as well as the possibility that there’s another shoe to drop because the Fed remains hawkish. Harry joins Maggie Lake, the host of Real Vision’s My Life in 4 Trades podcast, to talk about all that and much more, including Harry’s Cheesecake Factory anecdote.
