Fund Report part2; S&P weakened considerably since the inaugural TTF’s 1st report on the 28th Aug: https://thumbtackinvestor.wordpress.com/2020/09/06/thumbtack-fund-report-1-tough-times-dont-last-but-tough-funds-do/

That’s exactly what I’ve been doing in September.

I’ve managed to dance between the raindrops in the past month or so, as TTF continued to grow strongly, largely on the backs of just a couple of nicely timed positions.
