So, I just had a bat sh!t crazy idea. WHAT if, we created a platform, where you could start taking different prop bets on economic developments?
“Oh but Michael, you can already do that via the global capital markets”. - THAT’S where you’re wrong. Markets don’t always react rationally to news. You would not only have to have your forecasts accurate, but you also have to be RIGHT about how economic data will move markets.
So, I want to find a way in which I can engage with anyone else to make different prop bets (just like Fantasy Football, but instead, Fantasy Economics) on things like China making a Trade deal before this week is over.
There’s GOTTA be interest for something like this right?
AND THE BEST PART IS - since, the underlying instruments aren’t actually
scrutinized securitized, we could all make these bets with no restriction. Talk about taking candy from a baby.
I figure if we’re gonna go be a bunch of “analysts” - we might as well get paid on it too.
¯\_(ツ)_/¯ It be like that sometimes.
