Exposure: 17.1%

Net return: 602.8%

Comments: In the previous newsletter I wrote that the crypto bulls were getting exhausted from ever-falling prices, but that a bounce could - ironically - be expected:

And I turned out to be right.

BTC/ETH caught a bid going into the FOMC meeting, resulting in the biggest bounce seen in a month:

In the bigger picture, things aren't looking great either.

For the first time since I sold my DFK assets earlier this year, I'm starting to think about re-investing back into the game.

The question, however, is timing. The fundamental landscape isn't looking great at the moment and a dose of caution is warranted.

If you want to know exactly when I start buying in again, consider joining the private group.
