Mr. Matthew Garrett has been an independent market participant for the past 7 years starting at the age of 18. In this time he has consistently and accurately identified the major emerging macro trends. These talents gained him recognition from senior University staff and administration, Capital market professionals and the local community. The most significant prognostications include but are not limited to the following: 1) Identification of the coming systemic crisis originating from sub-prime products (early '07) -Subsequent broad based deleveraging and failure of large financial institutions -A need for unprecedented policy responses 2) Long-Term dollar weakness ('01) -Dollar rally ('08) -A likely emergence of a USD funded carry trade ('08-'09) 3) Popping of the oil bubble in July '08 - a +gold/-crude spread trade to remove tail risks. 4) Significant weakness in GBP,AUD,EUR/JPY crosses July-Sept '09 - this was a way of selling "risk" without the outside force of liquidity injections present in most risk assets. Currently, Matthew is exploring the option of launching a Global Macro fund or joining an established financial institution.
