As we bid adieu to 2023 and welcome the possibilities of 2024, I extend my heartfelt New Year greetings to each one of you. May this year bring unprecedented success and prosperity to your lives.

I am writing to inform you that the financial statements for December are now available for your perusal.  I must share that early in the month, I encountered a personal setback—an accident which resulted in a significant injury necessitating surgical intervention.  Consequently, I have been in a phase of recuperation over the past few weeks.

During this period, after thorough deliberation with my colleagues, we collectively decided to suspend all trading activities for the remainder of December.  This decision was influenced by my partners’ deep engagement in extensive research endeavors. While this has led to a minimal level of trading activity for the month, we believe it was a prudent step under the circumstances.

Looking ahead, we are fervently working towards the complete automation of our trading processes.  This advancement will ensure the continuity of our trading operations, irrespective of any unforeseen contingencies.

I am pleased to report that I am gradually resuming my duties, now capable of spending extended periods at the trading desk. 

The past year has been a testament to our robust performance, and we remain committed to enhancing our returns even further.  With the initiatives currently underway, I am confident that 2024 will unfold as yet another remarkable year for us.

Your continued trust and support in our endeavors are greatly valued.  I look forward to keeping you apprised of our progress and to a prosperous year ahead.
