It was our great pleasure to welcome back Cem Karsan (also known as @jam_croissant on Twitter), Founder and Sr. Managing Partner at Kai Volatility Advisors. This deeply insightful conversation included topics such as:

  • A recap of the last few months in equity markets
  • Volume-weighted time and why seasonality matters more than most people know
  • The acceleration of gamma, vanna and charm – a dangerous time to be short equities
  • Dealer positioning as a major gravitational force in markets, often overlooked
  • The ‘game of chicken’ played between speculators, hedgers and market makers
  • Less ‘put hedging’ begets the currently very low skew observed
  • Why the first and last two weeks of a year are so important
  • The large impact of retail speculative activity and challenges to market makers
  • Households still sitting on very large excess savings, which is often making its way into equity markets
  • Buy the dip – investors’ conditioning over the last 40 years
  • The risk of another lost decade for equity investors
  • Millennials vs Boomers – a generational tussle
  • Why the American dream has become increasingly unattainable to most
  • And much more
