The Macro Set-Up Podcast with Guy Adami & Dan Nathan

by Dan October 27, 2020 2:21 pm • RR Podcast• TheSetUp

Guy Adami and I are back with our weekly video podcast series The Macro Set-Up brought you by our presenting sponsor IG US, one of North America’s fastest-growing foreign exchange brokers.

Here is our discussion from earlier today recorded shortly after the stock market’s open where we discuss the three most pressing catalysts for risk assets, the upcoming election (obvi), the coronavirus surge the world over (some find debatable), and corporate earnings, which are coming in hot this week with Microsoft tonight, and the AGA of the MAGA complex (Apple, Google, Amazon) on Thursday after the close. A couple of weeks ago on this podcast, we had 5 catalysts, with two seemingly put on the back-burner to after the election, further fiscal stimulus, and virus vaccine progress, which we debate their hit to positive market sentiment.

We hope you enjoy watching it as much as we do making it, please share on social media and comment on youtube or directly to us at
