Any training classes on global macro?

  1. Just want to spend my vacation somewhere taking training courses on trading...

    As a quant-trader, what I lack most is the market experience and fundamentals, esp. when I trade global macro...

    Any good recommendations?

    Thanks a lot!
  2. Pick yourself up a college text on trade policy, monetary policy and exchange rates. Krugman has an international trade text that's pretty thorough, and it covers all topics tangent to trade, including accounts and rates. That'll form a solid platform to build on.
  3. You might wanna look at Drobny's "Inside the House of Money" book... It's not a textbook, though.
  4. Thanks for the above comments. I am also looking for training classes or video lectures. I feel I learn better that way...

    Thanks again!

    Read Bill Gross and Paul Mcculley monthly letters at the Pimco website(even the old ones), always an interesting perspective

    You mention that you're a visual learner. Wasn't able to find a video of Mises himself, but here's a 6 minute audio of a radio broadcast made during intermission of the U.S. Steel Concert Hour, May 17, 1962. Mises had been asked to respond to the question: "Are the interests of the American wage earners in conflict with those of their employers, or are the two in agreement?"
