September was without any ups and downs, although we were able to realize nice winnings. This is due to 2 positions that we consciously cling to. Some of you may already have guessed what they are: they are the usual evildoers of the gold-silver spread and cotton.

Current problem children are the previously and repeatedly discussed gold-silver spread (-$4,200) and our trade in cotton (-$1,100). We stick to both positions for many reasons and like to discuss this in our community.
