Who is this For?

This Market Analysis Service is designed by a highly experienced market risk taker of over three decades for asset managers (hedge funds, banks, institutional investors and Family offices) with medium and long term time frames. David’s history in managing macro capital and predicting market dislocations makes him an invaluable advisor to senior risk takers. His expertise and financial market analysis skills are particularly relevant to the successful management and preservation of capital as the global financial system faces challenges of the order of 2008 in the years ahead. David's credentials as a forecaster are outlined below.

Basis of Analysis

David developed a unique and effective set of behavioural models to predict financial markets whilst at JPM which were extremely effective and profitable. They acted as the foundation for his 20-year career as a CIO of his hedge fund Emergent Assest Management and yeilded some remarkable returns in the most bearish of markets (e.g 84% in 2008 - see track record).

How does it work?

The service is subscription based and provides two distinct inputs to our market analysis:

Arkent Updates named after the Ark and severity of the next expected global economic downturn. These are the integration of all elements of our market views into one coherent strategy and perspective and take into account price models and our geopolitical perspectives (Murrinations) into a single holistic predictive perspective. They are updated as and when major market events provide new information (on average once or twice a month).

I have known David for over five years and, during that time (all documented) he has predicted the rise of Trump, every twist and turn during the three-year course of Brexit, including Boris becoming PM (a year before he did), and the landslide election result.

On January 30th he called me and really panicked me (I have all the WhatsApp’s to prove it), which made me dump most of our family equity portfolio and move into cash. He has saved us a large fortune!

When no one was looking, in early January, he warned that the Wuhan Flu was going to become pandemic that would bring the global economy to a dead stop. Simultaneously he predicted the drop of oil from $65 to sub$27 and the collapse of the stock markets. All these predictions were in papers he wrote, and speeches he gave (some at my Invest Africa events), and most people then thought him mad. How silly (and poor) they look now.

Rob Hersov - Chairman of Invest Africa

I will state from the outset that I generally shun predictions and, by extension, am suspicious of those that claim to see the future. Nonetheless, while David refers to “predictions” on his website, I believe that these are better described as an interpretation of geopolitical conditions through the prism of his Stages of Empire theory. This has enabled David to consistently make seemingly outlandish but remarkably accurate interpretations of current events and, by extension, market calls. Given his interpretative framework, I see no reason why David’s analysis should not remain as consistently accurate for many years to come.

Many thanks for your Valuable advice on positioning in different asset classes.

Prakash Shirke - CFA Investment Adviser

Recalling our meeting at a Hannam and Partners dinner and subsequent lunch, I have regarded you as something of a sage as you predicted both the Trump victory and Brexit referendum as well as the market meltdown which we have witnessed over the past week or so.

John Battersby  - Director of the South African Chamber of Commerce consultant/journalist/author

Several years ago I had the fortune of meeting David Murrin through Rob Hersov. David captured his audience with his candid dialogue, no frill content and a wit that equaled his exceptional insights. His ability to leverage off historical context and provide relevance to the current global political arena had his audience spellbound. I would recommend David as both a speaker or VIP dinner guest at any table.

I don’t know enough about charting to make much of it myself, but I’ve seen enough to recognize the repetitive nature of market-driven behaviour. Market patterns do repeat and are therefore worth paying attention to. For instance, for a superb overview, take a look at David Murrin’s website. His global forecasts and commentary is worth a sign up to run through his chart-supported outlook and reading of the underlying forces at play

Bill Blain - Morning Porridge and Shard Capital

Example Market Outlook

Oil coiling To Drop

Oil Medium Term Very Bearish

The $78 high in late 2018 completed the end of the wave 4 correction and since then we have been coiling to make a new low. The secondary high at $67 is significant as a wave 2. The pop upwards post the strike on Saudia facilities is also a smaller wave 2 correction and as such we expect to see oil break down in the weeks ahead. Long term targets are sub $27.
