An important question to ask yourself.

Would you rather be the market … or beat the market?

In this recent clip from The Macro Show, Hedgeye CEO Keith McCullough and Senior Macro analyst Darius Dale address this important question and challenge viewers to go beyond simply buying the SPY.

Here’s a reality check.

Just because the Fed is actively injecting liquidity, doesn’t mean that SPY will yield the greatest returns. Case in point—big returns in bonds, bond proxies and gold, among others, versus overall SPY performance since the market cycle began to turn in September of 2018.

“It’s not about being lazy and getting up 4½ hours after Keith and I get up in the morning and saying there’s liquidity, so buy the SPY,” Dale explains.

“It’s about what the hell in the SPY are you going to be long and short? That’s how you outperform.”
