Week of 2013 AU 23

IWM rose by 1.8% this week, while my account rose 1.7% to its highest value since MA 31 and nearly up to its value from MR 28.  The loss-floor has fallen to -7.2%.

US market news: On Thursday, the NASDAQ market shut down at 12:21pm due to a quote-storm, which eventually overtook all other markets except ARCA (which apparently was the source of the problem).  Markets reopened at 3:25 EST.  Multiple hours of widespread trading halts seemed to have remarkably little effect on anything — perhaps this market really is completely rigged?

AGQ: Continuing to do well!  Max loss is now 2.3% above water, so a profitable end for this trade seems “guaranteed”.

Still have a “Buy” signal!  Still haven’t bought it.

On Wednesday, all stop-updates failed due to some problem at Schwab, which prevented loading of the subpage that shows how many shares I currently hold.  As of Thursday it was working again so I couldn't debug what had happened.

UWM: Last of the late-to-the-party trades from JL 15.  Because I was so late, this ended up being a loser instead of a winner.  Oh well.  This trade stopped out; I’m still not sure what number to use for “model sell price” for these leveraged tickers; shown here is the stop-price that had been set (there was some “slippage”).

ATML: Perfectly normal trade.  Everything went as expected.  Unfortunately, it was a loser.

URTY: Robot trade did not go through on Tuesday (Schwab timed out), but I didn't notice until end-of-day, so bought the next morning.  Got a better price, anyway.
