Market bubbles, macro and algo trading

Welcome to the High Vol Newsletter by me, Prathamesh Godbole.

High volatility (vol) is what happens when the markets go crazy- whether its after the Lehman Brothers bankruptcy in 2008, or the pandemic in 2020. I’ll be writing about the various market manias that have occurred in the past couple of centuries, the how and why they began, and their eventual end. Read on for a trip from the Great Depression of 1929 and its after effects that are still with us today, to the East Asian crisis of 1998, the Dotcom bubble, and finally the chaos induced by the Covid-19 pandemic in 2020.
