URTY: The stop price dropped sharply (to -2.8%) right after I bought this, then rose back to -2.2% for Thursday.  That seems to happen rather often with these trades, although I haven’t done the research to characterize the issue.  Hopefully the market will continue to rise and so will my stop price.

Stock-trading robot

The robot worked properly this week.  All trades went through on time.

SRTY ⁰: Skipped this trade due to last week’s memory-limit problem with the robot.  Would have been a winner.

TZA: As has been usual for TZA trades since August 2011, this one barely made any profit.  But I didn’t lose, even though I was “fighting the Fed“!

SRTY ¹: Another loser trade.  Too bad I skipped two winners in a row.

URTY, TNA: So far, so good!

ATML: There is a “Buy” order for Monday.
