By the time you read this, I’ll be in a turkey coma.
The market is closed. There’s no trading. It’s the perfect time to sit back and relax with family. (Quiet, you, I can hear you snickering.)
Thanksgiving brings with it many traditions:
- Getting together with family, whomever they may be.
- Eating massive quantities of turkey (or ham, you heathens), stuffing and that can-shaped lump of cranberry sauce.
- Watching football on TV — go Bills! (Sorry, Cowboys fans. It’s a Cincinnati thing.)
My personal family traditions include fried oysters, Kentucky bourbon — I’ve got my eye on a bottle of Colonel E.H. Taylor Small Batch this year — and “Alice’s Restaurant.” After all, you can get anything you want at Alice’s restaurant … excepting Alice. (Another Cincinnati thing … don’t question it. Just let it happen.)
There are a multitude of traditions, but one thing stands at the center of everything: family.
Regardless of how you define it, family are the people who support you. They’re there for you through thick and thin. They’re likely one of the reasons you started investing in the first place, to ensure they’re well taken care of.
So, this year, while you’re looking around at all your loved ones gathered to share a meal at your table (or, if you’re gathered together at someone else’s table), remember whom you’re investing for.
Set the market aside and be thankful for everything and everyone in your life.
Personally, dear readers, I’m very thankful for you and your continued support of Great Stuff.
So, thank you and have a great Thanksgiving.
Until next time, good trading!
