More than a few of your fellow hedge fund managers must have hooted and snorted when you began advising investors how to manage portfolios of as little as $100,000. "Don't sweat the small stuff," I can hear them saying.

By now, no doubt, they are marveling as we Tiny Tim’s rack up fabulous percentage gains thanks to your advice. For a while, I mainly read your thought-provoking and often entertaining advisories and watched what others did with them. Reflecting my inexperience with spreads and the like, my IRA with E*TRADE hadn't been approved for Level 3 options trading until quite recently. But I finally got that squared away and have participated fully in your amazing run during the last few months.

Keep this up and you'll have the retail investors returning to the market in droves. Many, many thanks.
