Civility in the Days Ahead

By -

I wanted to do a quick post to say a few words about the continued importance of avoiding political discord here on Slope. Right at the outset, I want to say there is no problem I am addressing. The atmosphere, decorum, and zeitgeist of the Slope community has never been better, and I sense a true esprit de corps here, which delights me.

However, for reasons perhaps you have read, there is bound to be an increase in political tension in the coming days in the U.S., and I would like to remind everyone (and myself) to focus on charts and finance as opposed to political difference.

Since I’m in the business of predicting the future, I will at least go on record with this absolutely apolitical prediction: the entire thing is going to be a total nothing-burger. And I believe the political machinery will draw their own conclusions about what the fact it was a non-event truly means.

Thank you, everyone, and I look forward to a very exciting trading week!
