Vine Street Trading
is a principal trading group focused on global macro financial markets.
Vine Street Trading is progressive organization that embraces the continuous and constant evolution of capital markets.
At VST we embrace the “Punch Bowl” theory of capital flow which contends that under the present socio-economic system, capital will flow (and over-flow) in and out of the punch bowl of credit and money supply controlled by World Central Bankers.
The dynamic flow of capital in and out of this “punch bowl” is what ultimately gives rise to major investment and trading themes throughout various asset classes across different regions of the world.
Vine Street Trading LLC was founded in 2006 with the belief that successful navigation of global macro financial markets requires participants to embrace the continually evolving structural and behavioral changes that alter the dynamic nature and behavior of global capital flows.
Vine Street Trading LLC is a global-macro, multi-asset principal trading group. We do not have any client or customer driven business. We risk our own capital in pursuit of profits on various global derivative and equity exchanges. The leadership maintains an honest, up-front, and transparent relationship with all of our employees.
