“Think about the insane amount of money the U.S. government gave away…”

These are the words of Alex Gurevich, a highly accomplished currency and bond trader.

Known for his unique opinions and entertaining speaking style, Gurevich recently spoke with Real Vision TV – a network with a reputation for featuring guests who challenge conventional financial wisdom.

Gurevich did not disappoint. In the interview, he lampooned the decision-making of government officials. He called long-term U.S. bonds a “terrible deal” for the government… and explained how trading government bonds is essentially “trading against government officials” (which he much prefers to trading against other successful traders).

It’s a lively interview with one of the finest trading minds around. Click here to watch in full.
