CAV: Caviar Quarterly Report — Q4 2018
Dear Community,As many of you know, the markets did not improve in Q4. We maintained a relatively neutral posture with continuous exposure to real estate debt and some crypto. A lot of our holdings have been liquidated in Q3 and Q4 and moved to stablecoin. We feel that there is likely more downside ahead, but we are slowly finding a bottom. As a matter of fact, we have been slowly purchasing ETH, BTC and XRP on dips, gradually adding small amounts. We are optimistic that either this quarter or the upcoming one should show a trend reversal to the upside.Even though we outperformed the market once again, we were unfortunately unable to have a profitable quarter and, therefore, there will not be a profit-sharing distribution in Q4.Our performance and market outlook are summarized below.— The Partners and Team at CaviarMarket Outlook for Q1 2019While we do not feel we have reached a full bottom yet, we are optimistic in the mid to long term. With Bakkt and other institutional exchanges coming online, we feel there will be new liquidity injected, and the markets will move to the upside. However, we do not feel we are going to have a major bull run like we had in years before, and frankly, these types of runs are not healthy, lead to bubbles and eventually, selloffs. We think we are going to see a slower, more sustained trend to the upside.Major Initiatives for Q1 2019Algo Trading and Data Science — we are continuing to pursue a few algo strategies, however, we have scaled this back some, as we have not yet been able to reach a consistent desirable return from the strategies we have been testing.Real Estate Lending — we are investing a lot of effort here, as this continues to be one of our core businesses we’ve had a lot of experience and success with, that can bring real revenue regardless of the market conditions.Exchanges — we are looking to list on mid-tier exchanges after the end of January. See note below.*Community Request*If anyone out there can make introductions to mid-tier, reputable exchanges outside of the United States of America, we would welcome those introductions. We are looking to list on exchanges that do not “wash trade” and do not charge large listing fees.
