“All I bring to the party is twenty-five years of mistakes.“
Kevin Muir – The MacroTourist
Macro and Market Commentary
Focusing on a wide variety of financial topics, the MacoTourist newsletter gives unique insights about what is really happening in the markets and the economy.
Many letters focus on one asset class or some other specialty. Kevin is a ‘tourist’ across the entire financial spectrum which allows best risk-reward situations to be highlighted.
Some of the concepts are complicated, but Kevin explains them in an easy-to-understand way that allows everyone to expand their macro and financial market toolkit.
Long passionate about markets, Kevin grew up in a household where his father was an equity research director. Being exposed to market talk as long as he can remember, Kevin’s true love was always macro. In fact, his first trade was in the US dollar index which promptly went limit-locked against him.
Not deterred, Kevin persevered and got a job on institutional equity desk for a big Canadian bank in the 1990s. Kevin moved into a proprietary group where he was in a charge of the equity derivatives book. Kevin had a ringside seat for the madness of the DotCom bubble, but in 2000, with a new young family, and the desire to no longer work for a bank, Kevin set off on his own. For the next 17 years, Kevin would trade his own account with another former co-worker, and a full-time computer programmer student they hired. Since then, Kevin has joined a well-establish prop group.
