Happy New Year (purple rains)

Happy New Year!

Didn't go to the Prince/Justin Timberlake-themed fireworks this year, and so watched it on live streaming instead.

Pretty spectacular stuff, as usual...

Thanks for reading in 2016, and seasons greetings to new readers. 

I did quite a lot of work with various international hedge funds in 2016, which resulted in the blog analytics having more of an international flavour across the second half of the year.

And with my analysis being featured at places like Zero Hedge, Value Walk etc. the blog saw many more readers from the United States than ever before, so a particular welcome to you guys.

In fact, the last month of 2016 saw the highest monthly readership ever, at more than 68,500 hits. 

Thanks for sharing, and stand by for 2017 news...
