Wednesday? More like Fed-nesday
September 21, 2016
The Chief and Kevin O’Neill kick off the show talking about construction projects in Chicago. Spoiler : Chief hates how long they take. But who doesn’t? The Chief brings up this year’s presidential election and more importantly – what foreign countries think of our political race. Hint : it’s not good. Kevin exclaims that he hasn’t seen any Hilary Clinton signs but there seems to be a lot of Hilary voters. Are these people just anti-trump voters?
What can we expect from the Fed decision later today? Finally – Chief asks Kevin -“How do people choose their banks?”
Fari Hamzei of Hamzei Analytics answers Chief’s question – “Where do you get your international news from?” Before talking markets.
David Andalman of PTI Securities & Futures finishes Wednesday’s show with some money talk. What is The Bank of Japan exactly doing? How will David trade the rest of this week out?

All businesses have their intrigue, but the inner workings of sports organizations find their way into the public domain frequently. Unless a rant from the Chief spills into Kevin’s segment (not an unusual occurrence), he will highlight some of those sports related business issues; but be advised that those highlights usually come with an opinion.
