Week of 2014 MR 28

IWM fell by 3.7% this week, while my account fell 2.2%.  The loss-floor has risen to -2.1% because I am out of the market.

In the last nine weeks, the market has gained 0.8% while I have gained 0.5%.  Boring!

Stock-trading robot

The robot remains non-functional.  I put in a lot of time at my day-job this week and made money that way!  Still continuing to put off that OS upgrade for the robot’s server-in-the-cloud.

FRED: Nasty stop-out!  Opened at $18.84, fell to $18.05 within the first minute.  Schwab sold 7% of my shares at around $18.31, 23% of them at $18.29, and 70% at about $18.06

YHOO: Sold late.  Due to robot screw-up, I didn’t notice that I was supposed to put in a sell order for this one!

URTY: Sold late due to robot failure.  Lucked out — I lost less money than expected!

UWM: At least I didn’t lose money on this one!  In retrospect, I would have been better off skipping this trade (which had been postponed due to lack of liquid cash).

SRTY: Skipped these trades because the robot is not working.
