VTS Community,

I would like to wish everybody no matter where you are in the world today a Merry Christmas.  I hope you all have a wonderful holiday season with your family and friends.

I don’t often fly back to Canada for any other holiday, but it’s hard not to want to be back in Calgary for the Christmas season.  As many of you know, Starbucks is basically my 2nd office.  I’m there at 6 am everyday  (the guy shoveling the snow is always so happy and friendly)

How can you not love that?  Compared to my home in Taipei, Taiwan where it’s 21 degrees celsius.  It just doesn’t feel right if it’s t-shirt weather.

I helped my mom move into an apartment last year, and it was a little disappointing for her to see that the new family didn’t really maintain the amazing garden that she had.  But we drove by the old house this week and boy were we surprised!

We forgive them.  Obviously they love their new place.  They have the best Christmas lights on the block.


So a huge thank you to everyone for the support this year.

Of course I hope everybody learned a little something about the markets through my videos and daily blogs which I will keep making, but I definitely want to thank everybody because I also learned a lot from you.  I had so many fantastic questions and great conversations about investing this year with our community and I truly appreciate all of you.

Markets were definitely very strange in 2017 and I’ve tried to talk about what that might mean going forward.  One thing I do know though, regardless of what’s coming we will be ready and to be honest I’m looking forward to things changing a little bit.  I sure hope we get an opportunity to showcase the safety side of our strategies because they are all multi faceted.  We’re not just bull market investors, we have to be ready for the flip side as well.

Markets are closed for Christmas Monday, so put your diets on hold for a few days and enjoy the Turkey dinner, the chocolate, the spiked egg nog, and I’ll see you all bright and early on Tuesday ready to get back into it.

Merry Christmas!
