    Aging Demographics & Debt

    The largest population in all recorded history, the baby boomers, are leaving the labor force at around 3-4 million a year. This means their spending habits will decline, and spending is what fuels the economy. A strong economy services debt levels through GDP, and taxes. With record-high government debt, corporate debt, college debt, household debt, and a declining GDP growth rate, the government has no choice but to raise taxes and create more debt to service existing debt in order to avoid a global default on the entire financial system. The problem is , if you increase taxes on citizens, their spending declines. If you increase taxes on corporations, investment declines. If you print money you destroy the real value of income and wages while asset prices appreciate. Money printing ultimately widens the gap between wealth and poverty because those who own assets benefit while those who earn wages are robbed. No matter how much growth is generated through money printing, prices always rise faster than wages, demand plummets and the economy goes into recession wiping out those who don’t own assets. The government's solution is to print more money (treat the symptoms), our solution is to own the technologies that will build the future (cure the disease).

    Disruptive Technology & Deflation

    How does an economy generate the growth rate without throttling prices through the roof? The answer is disruptive innovation. It was electricity, the telephone, the internal combustion engine, and the internet that increased economic activity, household wealth, and lower prices for a decent living. Technology stimulates wealth, not government or central bank policy. In 2021 we are slowly but surely witnessing the transition of power from one demographic to another. We are entering an era where software is eating the world and information-rich products are dematerializing into digital networks with extremely fast adoption curves. The new disruptive innovation comes in the form of 5 base platforms. 1) Artificial intelligence 2) Energy Storage 3) Robotics 4) Genomics and 5) Blockchain. These technologies will drive the cost of living lower than ever before. Through these 5 platforms emerges technologies that will change how we live forever: Space travel, Hyper flights, curing disease, near-zero cost energy, near-zero cost data, 3D printing industrialization, decentralized monetary systems, smart contracts, fully electric autonomous vehicles, etc.


    Markets function in reaction or anticipation of tightening and loosening mechanisms caused by human behavior, policy and the rate of change in growth and inflation. If markets go too far in either extreme, the probability of recession significantly increases. Too much loosening may result in rising prices and eventual economic collapse. Too much tightening may result in defaults on debt and eventual economic collapse. We believe markets respond to the cyclical nature of macro variables and that monitoring these changes through Fundamental (the what) & Technical Analysis (the when) offers an edge to speculative opportunities for investment growth.


    • When something tightens its reducing the amount of money flow in the system much like reducing the water flow from a faucet.- When something loosens it increases the amount of money flow in the system much like increasing the water flow from a faucet.


    1) Macro Variables

    • - Policy
    • - Debt/Currency Instruments
    • - Equity Risk Indicator
    • - Economic Mechanisms

    2) Policy

    Debt / Currency Instruments

      3) The U.S Dollar

    • When the Dollar tightens it's typically a sign of 3 possibilities: 1) risk-off 2) A flight to safety 3) quantitative tightening. 
    • When the Dollar loosens it's usually a sign of 3 possibilities: 1) 
    risk-taking 2) investor confidence 3) quantitative easing.</span>

    Below is a chart highlighting how the Dollar responded to Pandemic risks, Monetary policy, Fiscal policy and rising inflation data. 👇 

    4) 10 Year Bond Yields

    • When Bond Yields tighten it's usually a sign of pending inflation.- When Bond Yields loosen it's usually a sign of slowing growth or recession.

    5) Equity Risk Indicator

    The Volatility Index is a type of insurance against the S&P 500, reacting inverse to the overall stock market.

    Below is a visual representation of the inverse relationship between the volatility index (VIX) and the stock market (SPY.) 👇

    6) Economic Variables

    7) Inflation

    • An imbalance between demand and supply for goods and services results in rising prices.- Inflation can come from the demand side, the supply side, or both.

    8) Growth

    • A balance between demand and supply for goods and services results in economic growth.- Growth is measured through businesses and the consumer.

    9) Market Regimes

    • Identifying market conditions in terms of growth and inflation.- recognizing which assets, stocks, and style factors complement each economic environment.
