Howdy folks, Old schoolie here... haven't posted on ET in many years. Shout out to all the peeps who remember (I see some of you are still here)... Anyhow, the desire to conduct a little experiment has brought me back. I'm going to try posting my regular market notes in this thread -- with an emphasis on global macro -- for the sake of comment and discussion. I also do a weekly roundup of macro-related news links that some may find helpful. JS p.s. To avoid confusion, "darkhorse" and "Jack Sparrow" are the same guy (me).
