Today is the last day of the quarter. For me, who manages a small hedge fund, that is terribly exciting, because I don’t have to wring my hands with worry about guarding my Q1 results. I’ve got an amazing quarter under my belt, and, frankly, I don’t have to worry about messing it up. I feel far, far more enthusiastic about getting aggressive by day’s end than I did even yesterday.
And what a quarter it has been. Surely in the long history of United States financial markets, if this isn’t the most amazing quarter in that entire span, surely it ranks in the top four. What I’ve had the privilege of enjoying just this month includes:
- Some of the best trading of my life;
- Far and away the biggest surge of subscribers ever, in the midst of celebrating Slope’s 15th birthday;
- Some amazing product/feature breakthroughs on the site.
And we’re only one-forth of the way into the year!(more…)
