Blockworks is proud to present a new podcast with Alfonso Peccatiello, co-host of “The Macro Trading Floor.” Each week on “Boiler Room,” Alf interviews the top names in finance to help you maneuver markets.
In the debut episode, Alfonso is joined by Brent Donnelly, president of Spectra Markets and author of “Alpha Trader” and the AM/FX newsletter. They discuss the recent weaponization of the US dollar and whether this trend will accelerate de-dollarization. Brent also shares some of his medium-term outlooks for FX markets and explains how to position trades around uncertain outcomes. But to hear about that, you'll have to tune in!
