Week of 2013 JA 11

IWM rose 0.1% this week, while my account fell by 0.2%. The loss-floor fell to +1.0%.

IAU: The price of gold did not move much this week.  No one seems to know why — just mutterings about a “rigged market”.  When is the market ever *not* rigged?

The robot worked correctly this week; unfortunately both trades were abortive attempts to ride a downbound train that didn’t actually leave the station.  Oh well; small losses cannot be helped.
