Welcome to Episode 522 of the Trading Justice podcast where we present part two of a three-part series on the dollar. In part one of this series Matt walked through the history of currency up to 1944 when the Bretton Woods Agreement was signed. In this second part, Matt starts off in the early 1970s with the removal of the gold standard up to the Financial Crisis in 2009. It is a fascinating historical backdrop that sets the stage for our final part in this series which involves the establishment of the petrodollar, the role of the creation of the Euro, The Iraq War, and the deregulation of banking that led to the Financial Crisis. Truly an interesting journey. Before that, the Justice Boys discuss the markets in their Market Skyline segment. Topics include the coming potential recession, sectors to play, and a breakdown of commodities. Matt and Mark also have a few minutes of dialogues on the concept of what the markets “price in.” While that debate was left unsettled one thing that is certainly priced in is your enjoyment and enlightenment over the next hour as you listen to another episode of the Trading Justice podcast!
