In this episode, Coach Tyler Craig joins us to discuss April’s Trading Justice newsletter ‘A Beginners Guide to Interest Rates’. Tim and Tyler talk about the role interest rates play in the economy and markets for consumers and investors. Listen in to the conversation to learn more about interest rates, the yield curve, how inflation impacts interest rates, the fed funds rate, and the impact of low-interest rates on savers.
Before that, the coaches analyze the markets from a top-down perspective during our skyline. The S&P 500 and DJIA have been trading at all-time highs over the past week, while the Nasdaq 100 has played catch-up and pushed towards its high. Gold bounced off support, the US Dollar is on a retracement while Bitcoin is pushing towards an all-time high breakout. Listen in as we analyze all of the price action and news that is impacting the markets this week, including a preview of earnings season.
Lastly, Coach Mark hosts a game of ‘Closest to the Hole’ where Matt and Tim guess golf trivia across different questions. When did Jack Nicklaus win his first Masters? How old was Tiger Woods when he won his green jacket? If you love golf or trivia, you’ll have some fun listening to this week’s game.
