“Masters of the Bubbleverse”

Here‘s a great piece from New York Magazine about Tiger Global, a venture capital firm who helped create the tech growth stock bubble that we are watching deflate right now.

As the Tiger 40 stocks have tanked, the hedge funds that own them have gotten margin calls asking for more cash or collateral for their loans and redemption notices from investors wanting their money back. That in turn created more selling, which created even more selling, and so on. The same feedback loops that were operative on the way up are working in reverse on the way down.

“The Global Natural Gas Crisis is coming to North America”

This blog post lays out a detailed summary of the conditions of some natural gas producers in the country and points to a looming decrease in production coupled with a surge in global demand, with the US becoming the world’s top exporter.

Another post includes nice charts and factoids that back up that sentiment.

“And IF the winter of 2022–2023 is colder than normal, similar to the 2017–2018 winter, the U.S. will come dangerously close to running out of Nat Gas at the end of next winter!”

Freestyle Financial has been heavily involved in the commodities trade and we expect to see natural gas price at $15.00/Bcf by the end of the year. Our strategy is based around long-dated KOLD puts and swing trades in shares of BOIL. The recent selloff is providing a great entry point into the peak natural gas usage season.
