IWM rose by 2.0% this week, while my account rose by 1.2%. The loss-floor has fallen to -11.6%, tieing its lowest value ever.
Seasonality: The last two weeks of May are typically a low-voume melt-up because most people have already done their “sell in May” thing.
|End of week allocations:
107% equities, 28% silver, 19% cash
URTY, ATML: Yet again the stop price drops just after I buy these things.
floor: Since URTY’s sell-stop has been changed to a market-sell for next Tuesday’s open, I have excluded its max-loss from the floor.

URTY: Last week’s ”New Rule” applies! Price is above SMA(s) but below CHANDELIER(+) so a stop-price cannot be calculated. Sell at next Tuesday’s open.
ATML: Bought a few seconds after the open, for one penny less than opening price.
YHOO, AGQ: Bought these at their opening prices, which were below my limit prices.
SRTY: Schwab’s real-time prices said not to buy but Barchart.com’s end-of-day fixup prices said should have bought earlier, so bought after-hours on Wednesday. As it turned out, I should have just skipped this trade — pre-emptive sale at 10am because otherwise the stop-price would have been within the preceding half-hour.
UWM: “Buy” order for Tuesday, but there won’t be enough settled cash to pay for it until Wednesday. Hopefully the robot will keep it for at least one day. It would be nice if I could just keep URTY and tell the robot to pretend it bought UWM (as this would avoid two trading fees) but it seems too difficult to do that.
