Mr. Cohen,

I trust that you received a welcome holiday gift from Mr. Bernanke earlier this afternoon.  ‘Tis the season, after all!  At the risk of sounding presumptuous, I cannot imagine that the Fed’s decision to temporarily withhold any major pronouncements was not patently obvious to any thoughtful financial enthusiast (and it appears that the markets were not caught entirely unawares, either).  As you can see, in anticipation of a future career as a trader at a prestigious financial institution such as ——- Financial LLC I carefully follow all of the events that may move markets.  My firm belief is that those who prepare to succeed, even when not embroiled in the day-to-day rigors of the trading pits, will be ready to seize the opportunities that emerge when such opportunities are presented. 

While I, like many, were not surprised that Mr. Bernanke chose the course that he did, I remain convinced that the new year will see the issuance of the fabled QE3.  Indeed, I have already taken on a number of positions in my personal account that should benefit greatly from another round of monetary magic from Helicopter Ben.  It is my sincere hope that both you and I will be able to handsomely profit from this development as partners in the New Year.  Perhaps we could arrange a mutually-convenient conversation to discuss the wide-ranging and potentially lucrative implications of my investment thesis and how a mutually beneficial partnership between us may be arranged in time to take advantage of these impending events.

Please inform me if you would like to arrange a meeting in order to develop these ideas further.  I look forward to your reply.

Warm regards,

Liam
