Understanding Fundamentals

Hi Everybody ,

I've been involved with trading for some time and am more or less familiar with most schools of technicals, volume profile , order flow etc .

However , it seems the big players or hedge funds are mostly trading based on global macro or fundamentals - with which I've no experience so far . I thought it'd be interesting to know their perspectives or being able to see things from a different angle .

I was looking at Alchemy of Finance , any other good read on economy/finance would also be fine .

What would be some helpful resources to start understanding & perhaps developing some fundamental ideas/strategies ?

Hi kolbe,

One of the easiest ways I know to get acquainted with fundamentals is browsing various financial websites (such as Financial Times, Bloomberg, Reuters, etc.) and read news articles that are likely to talk about macroeconomics. I regularly save any such articles for later viewing, such as this selection

Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).


There is at least one webinar I know of that talks about macroeconomics in the Webinars section of the forum, but for that you need an Elite subscription.

RealVision covers a lot of Global Macro in their interviews (there is a lot of free content available these days as well). Check out anything with Raoul Pal and the interview with Stan Druckenmiller.

MacroVoices is a good podcast covering Global Macro.

https://www.macrovoices.com/

The Macro Tourist is a good blog covering Global Macro issues.

https://www.themacrotourist.com/

Also lots of Global Macro traders on twitter that post regularly.
