Just to add to the LTCM theme here is a link to a podcast I posted several years ago featuring Victor Haghani who was one of the founding members of LTCM, he delves deep into all he learnt about risk management following that disaster and how it can be applied to a typical trading account (if memory serves) 2nd podcast down.

interesting. very similar to the Italian bond divergence that @DanielaIG wrote about all those weeks ago. I would be interested to see the sort of size you could get on IG, the cost to hold the trade for 6 months, and the potential return. Who wants to have a crack at that maths? :P 

wonder if its worth taking on the risk of potential convergence - only the maths will tell

    • Gold and oil head in different directions Sellers rule in gold at present, while the buyers have oil prices firmly in their grasp. Source: Bloomberg  Chris Beauchamp | Chief Market Analyst, London | Publication date: Tuesday 28 September 2021  Gold Gold prices continue to head lower, with little sign of any respite for the time being. Overall the sellers are in charge, and as the price drops through last week’s lows around $1740 the bearish view is reinforced. Rallies such as we have seen over the past week tend to encounter selling, with buyers unable to establish a hold above $1770, then $1760, $1750 and now $1740. Source: ProRealTime WTI Any of the jitters affecting equities are not being felt in oil prices, which have made another leap, this time towards the July peak at $76.47. Just as the sellers in gold are in charge there, so the buyers are in the driving seat here. There has been little in the way of downward movement, with the uptrend firmly re-establishing itself in the past five sessions. Source: ProRealTime
    • EUR/USD stuck fast, as GBP/USD and USD/JPY move higher The euro is unable to rally against the dollar, but the pound is able to move up against the greenback and USD/JPY makes further strong gains.   Forex Shares United States dollar USD/JPY Japanese yen Euro  Chris Beauchamp | Chief Market Analyst, London | Publication date: Tuesday 28 September 2021  EUR/USD clings to recent lows EUR/USD continues to struggle around $1.17, having seen gains above this level last week fizzle out. So far any bigger move lower continues to elude the sellers, with a defence of $1.17 holding the pair in place. We wait for a bigger move above $1.175 or below $1.166 to provide the indication of the next directional move. Source: ProRealTime GBP/USD stages a recovery Signs of GBP/USD bullish momentum have developed over the past two sessions, as the price builds on Monday’s gains with a push back above $1.37. Further gains would target the 50-day simple moving average (SMA) at $1.379, and then on to $1.385. Source: ProRealTime USD/JPY targets August high Further gains for USD/JPY have carried to the highest level in months, any ¥111.60 looks like it will be tested in due course. This powerful leap higher has broken the summer range and puts buyers firmly in charge, opening the path to additional upside beyond the late June high. Source: ProRealTime
