They begin by discussing overall market conditions and both agree that there is big trouble brewing. Mike and Bubba express concern for the average investor.
Mike and Bubba talk about trading versus investing and both believe that the average investor spends too much time looking at the markets and becomes short sighted forgetting the objective. Bubba feels that technology is to blame for the bad decisions made by investors also adding that they spend too much time looking at their retirement accounts.
Next up for Mike and Bubba is the commodity collapse. The problem remains with the FED and their financial engineering is creating troubles in the commodity space. Mike and Bubba believe that free markets need to return and that the future looks bleak and will continue to until the central banks step aside.
