The Era of American Stock Dominance Is Over | Kevin Muir

In December 2021, Kevin Muir, veteran trader and author of The Macro Tourist, came on Forward Guidance and made a series of bold predictions all of which came true. Now, with a red carpet rolled out for him, Kevin returns to Forward Guidance to share his predictions for 2023.

Kevin argues that U.S. stocks will underperform foreign equities, that 2023 will be far more "boring" than investors expect, and that deep trouble is brewing in private markets (venture capital, private equity, and private debt). Kevin also contends that the economy might fare better than many anticipate, and that bank stocks will do well.

Filmed the afternoon of January 6th, 2023.
