What are Macro Fundamentals?

It is the billions of transactions – exchanging goods, services and labor, that take place each day around the world, conducted by billions of people, all simultaneously trying to selfishly do what is in their own best interests.  The majority of investors and analysts turn to macro economists to gain insights to the future impacts.

The flaw in the world today is that macro economist believe they can model and forecast these trends. They expect to know what billions of people are going to do, before they do it.  Their belief is that these people will react a certain way when gas for their car becomes cheaper, or the interest on their mortgage increases or decreases, or if the bankers will lend more if the central banks pump money onto their balance sheets.

Trying to know the unknowable is really a fool’s game.

So what is a solution?

Rather than forecasting the markets with macroeconomic models, it is far more effective to learn the rules of the game.  With an understanding of the macro fundamental landscape, we can assess the unfolding reality and subsequently the implications of the unfolding trends.  This objective is then to react, to protect, or to profit from them.

How important is the Macro Fundamental Landscape?  To us, it is the driver of EVERYTHING.  Based on this, macro fundamentals provide the foundation upon which we can use traditional fundamental and technical analysis to support our outlook. The end result is a much more holistic approach to investing.

Advance beyond the traditional approach to investing and discover the role Macro Fundamentals play in the price movement of your investments and learn how to interpret the information to make more effective decisions.
