Macro Voices Discussion Forum

The investment world is full of scam artists and con men, and one of their favorite tricks is to join an investment-related forum like this one, warm up to other users on that forum, then try to run some kind of scam on them. While we do our best to remove any posts we feel are inappropriate we recommend extreme caution when considering investment advice posted by other guests on this, or any other public forum.

Again, I got most of my thoughts out on the air this week, but I'd love to hear what you all think about the job that Erik and I did covering trading strategies for the coming bottom in oil. If we failed to sufficiently explain any of the angles for playing this coming bottom, please ask us here and we'll do our best to clarify and/or explain.

Also really curious what you guys think about the mailbag segment? Helpful? Waste of time and air space? Let us know...

Hope you all enjoyed, and we'll be back next week with Episode 5, and our featured guest will be our good friend Grant Williams, of Real Vision Television and his terrific blog, "Things That Make You Go Hmmm...". We've got some exciting collaborations forthcoming with Grant and the guys from RVTV, so stay tuned!

Hello Nathan
First of all thanks very much to both of you, I am an amateur investor, not by choice but I feel compelled to speculate due to my understanding of the way in which the middle class is being robbed and enslaved by votes ,fear ,ignorance ,corruption and the sense of entitlement from those who are not middle class.
From a deep history perspective I feel the western world is taking the step backwards which was predicted by Ayn Rand.
There is a lot of of scare mongering in the investing world which can be more destructive than inaction.
I have listened to your show on 3 occasions, each of which you allowed your guests the opportunity to speak their minds which they don't get a chance to do on the mainstream news.
3 fantastic interviews with excellent analysis
you will be my first port of call for the financial news

@brianmoran1973 - Very kind words. Thank you so much! We're trying to do something a little different with MacroVoices, and it's good to know that it is resonating with listeners like yourself.

Hi Nathan and Erik, I just would like to thank you for answering my question. My name is Vitor Soares (thats why my nickname is vsoares), I am from brazil, so its a portuguese name. I dont expect you to know how to pronounce it, so you can call me the way you like if another question of mine ends up in the show. Thanks a lot!

Episode 4 was excellent, as was episode 3.

I would've enjoyed Eric's thoughts about oil equity options. They are certainly very speculative, but they also have huge potential percentage gains. I've been selling covered out of the money short-term calls on my oil company equities, but it's definitely getting too late in the oil bear market to continue selling equity calls. So I'm now thinking of going long some of these beaten down oil company equity options to play the upside potential. I actually made a first foray in that direction three days ago when I bought 200 of the MRO April 15 $10 calls for $0.22 each. It was a pretty small investment of around $4500 with commissions, but with MRO already up $2 since then, the options have already moved up to around a dollar. Now if some outfit like Exxon comes along to bid for Marathon, that very small investment could turn out very nicely!!

@Xriva - As much as we fear overdoing it on the topic of oil, it remains such an important topic that we just can't help ourselves. ;)

In addition to an interview with Grant Williams, expect Erik and I to spend quite a bit a time on oil again this week.
