SPY fell by 1.5% this week, while my account rose 1.3%. The loss-floor rose to -5.8%, equalling its value as of March 16th.
IAU: Another consolidation week. Might be time to buy more soon, but I have not developed a model for when to buy more.
TZA: Looking good! Monday’s scheduled stop-update will raise my loss floor to +0.1%.
SRTY ³: Bought at low-of-day! But sold next day for nearly the same price.
SRTY ⁴: Bought at a worse price, so arguably should just have kept SRTY ³. Made a gain, though.
SRTY ⁵: Erroneous purchase due to slightly-wrong price quote. Made a slight gain anyway.

SRTY ⁴: Unclear why this trade was an hour off.
SRTY ⁵: Wrong quotes at 10am and 12pm caused this erroneous trade. Considering that VPSville seems to consistently take 4‒7 seconds to fetch a quote, perhaps I should run the batch job at four seconds before the hour (rather than on-the-hour) to minimize these glitches. After the daily fix-up via barchart.com, I added a temporary rule to the robot so it would not forget that it had bought this thing and would look for an exit time — which turned out to be the next day.
