Event Risks and Catalysts for 2017

It’s imperative that one should learn to recognize and navigate through the potholes and avoid pitfalls that often appear in this arduous path of macro trading.

One key lesson I’ve taken away from the macro world is not simply to take note of economic releases or events for tomorrow, next week or the week after. Identifying what will happen in the future and imagining their various outcomes and consequences should affect our investment decisions today. Solving this four dimensional puzzle in this complex yet intriguing domain is largely difficult to begin with.   

As a starting point, my approach towards macro trading is to focus on the economics. With that said, I’d also like to contribute by opportunistically pointing out tactical ideas as a hedge or risk position on top of the thematic book.

Hence, I’ve decided to write my first post to identify some of the key events we’ll be going through in 2017 and hopefully, this serves as a guide for you in reducing or adding risk to your portfolio to avoid or capitalize on the potential volatility on asset prices.

Please feel free to point out additional events that I should include in the link below and i’ll promptly edit it.

Also, i’d like to thank Macro Man for on boarding me to TMM 2.0 and I look forward to contribute to the community.
