Bigger is better, right? Well, traditionally, yes. However, sometimes a new way or an original idea is just downright better than conventional methods. Take, for example, a fight between the big guy and the little guy. What advantages does each one have, and who will win?
|Big Guy||Little Guy|
|Muscle Mass||Not muscle bound|
|Powerful hits||Fast, successive strikes|
|More damage per connection||Better angle for body striking|
|Better long range||Better short range|
Take a look at this epic fight from Sherlock Holmes 2:
Even though he’s up against a larger opponent, Sherlock effectively uses his speed and strategy to make quick work of that guy! I wouldn’t want to be on the wrong side of team Sherlock. Ever.
Now parallel this to The Apiary Fund. We’re definitely a smaller company made up of the little guys. Most of our traders don’t have years of schooling and finance degrees under our belts; however, we aren’t hung up in corporations, worried about whether or not the new kid in the next cubicle is out trading us, or whether or not we’ll still have our jobs at the end of the month. We don’t have to move massive amount of money bulk: our smaller individual portfolio’s can quickly jump into the perfect set up for a quick jab at the market. You’re free from corporate stress while still enjoying the benefits of having a company back you up! You guys bring us the ‘Little Guy’ advantages, and together we create the ‘Big Guy’ perks (for example, everyone coming together and shorting the euro at the Manhattan Beach Summit).
Also, please note Sherlock’s line, “This mustn’t register on an emotional level,” and then how he mapped out his strategy and followed throuh. Remind you of something you’ve been told a hundred times?? 😉
