Week of 2013 OC 04

IWM rose by 0.6% this week; my account fell 0.1%.  The loss-floor has fallen to -5.9%.

US news: The federal government remains shut down.  Wall Street doesn’t care, as long as the Fed continues to hand out free money to banksters.

FNSR: Technical indicators wobbling around zero, so bought Monday, sold Tuesday, bought back Wednesday (for a worse price).

URTY: More wobbling.  Sold Friday (for a very good price), bought back an hour later (slightly worse price).

URTY ¹: Excellent!  Gained almost 14% in a month.  Since I bet only 12% of my money, the total account balance increased by 1.7% as a result of this trade.

URTY ²: Not sure why the robot bought two hours early.  Schwab’s price-quotes were off by several cents at 10am and also at 1pm, which could be a sufficient explanation since the technical “buy” indicators were so marginal.

TZA: Failed to buy at 10am; still having a problem with calculating the initial stop for a short-buy.  Bought manually at 12:30pm.  Stopped out the next day, anyway.
