Today we discuss the disconnect between stock market prices & their expected returns based on economic data,  why current p&l may not reflect the quality of your positions, and the potential role of central banks in the future.  Questions we answer include: How do you reduce futures rollover costs?  How often should a Trend Follower look at their portfolio?

Documentaries mentioned: The Fourth Turning Explained and Prince of the Yen
