Stock2Me’s latest podcast features Scott Shellady, a financial markets commentator who can frequently be seen on Fox Business, Bloomberg, CNN and TD Ameritrade.
During the interview, Shellady provided a brief overview of his background, his outlook on the trends guiding the market in 2021 and the importance of the next 18 months as the economy continues to get up-to-speed in the wake of the global pandemic.
“I’ve been in the financial business – commodities, equities and fixed income – for about 34 years. Over the last probably 10 or 15 years, because I wear a black and white Holstein cow jacket… I garnered a lot of attention; people wanted to talk to the big guy in the cow jacket,” Shellady said. “Slowly but surely, I became an accidental commentator. I didn’t mean for it to happen. About the time I started wearing the jacket, we started to see a lot of flows into the market, especially into fixed income, bonds and interest-rate products… Being at the Chicago Board of Trade and trading on the exchange in the pits, a lot of people could see the jacket from the visitor’s gallery… One thing led to another and all of a sudden you find yourself on CNBC and Fox.”
