On a serious note, if you are a client of ours, you should be thankful for volatility and panic.

Forager’s main competitive advantage is the ability to not lose our heads on the way up, or the way down. The emotional wherewithal to be “fearful when others are greedy and greedy when others are fearful”. It’s a skill that has been worth two tenths of stuff-all over the past few years.
No one wants to see people dying. And we are nowhere near bargain territory. But the human emotion of fear, depressed for so long, seems to be alive and well in financial markets. Maybe, just maybe, we still have a role in the world.
