Milton Berg: “The US Dollar Is a Joke”

Dear Reader,

In this week’s Global Macro Update, you’ll hear about the potential for a 1930s-style economic crash and what can be done to prevent it... what drives a stock’s price on any given day (hint: it is not momentum)... and the popular asset class you should be avoiding if you are an individual investor.

Milton Berg, CFA, CEO, and chief investment strategist of MB Advisors, brings decades of trading and market timing experience to our discussion. He’s worked with the biggest names in the hedge fund world, including Soros, Druckenmiller, and Steinhardt. This conversation will challenge some of your long-held views on what drives the markets.
