|Includes:FXY, Japan Equity Fund (JEQ), NKY, NTETF, YCL, YCS

Jason Burack of Wall St for Main St interviewed CME Trader and hedge fund manager Tres Knippa.

Tres has setup a hedge fund to specifically short the Japanese government bond (JGB) market.

During this 40+ minute interview, Jason first asks Tres how high frequency trading (HFT) has affected his trading.

Next, they start to go in depth on Japan and how Japan got into its huge mess of QE, debt monetization and stagnation in the first place.

This discussion covers many aspects of Japan including how Japan's culture makes entrepreneurship difficult, how Japan has kept the game going for this long and bankrupted many hedge fund managers betting there will be a crash in JGBs, etc.

Finally, Tres talks about MMT, Keynesian economics, politicians and gold to wrap up the interview and discusses some different ways the retail investor who is not worth 7 figures or more can possibly plan Japan's coming currency and bond crisis.
