Week of 2014 JN 20

IWM rose by 2.3% this week, while my account rose by 1.7%.  The loss-floor has risen to -10.2%.

Market news: Wednesday’s FOMC meeting caused the market to shoot up like a rocket!  This may mean that a top is imminent.  I wish I had more confidence that my robot will “sell high” rather than waiting for the drop.

me -6.4 -7.1 -6.2 -5.8 -4.7 -4.7
floor -11.2 -10.8 -11.2 -10.8 -10.5 -10.2

ATML: Not bad after a month!  And SMA(s) is slowing down, so there’s some chance I might keep much of the +2.5 rather than settling for the +1.1.

YHOO: Terrible!  Gapped down 5% on Monday because Alibaba (of which Yahoo owns 22%) reported disappointing earnings ahead of their IPO.  Hasn’t recovered all week.  SMA(s) is still rising, so I expect this one will stop out with a minimal loss (after being up +1.2 only a week ago).  Only good news is that the stop is back up to -0.1 after a week.

URTY: Stop is back up to -1.1.  SMA(s) is still rising, so no way to know whether I’ll manage to catch the top with this one.

AGQ: Jumped two days after I bought it!  And the stop-price is almost in positive territory, so good news is possible for next week.  A sudden jump in precious metals often occurs just before a correction begins.

UWM: Still wishing I had bought this.  Would be up +1.5 by now.

AGQ: Limit-price was not reached on Monday, but *was* reached on Tuesday.  The trading system currently has me entering the limit-orders manually for daily trades, but I didn’t get around to entering the trade for Tuesday until after price had moved above the limit I was supposed to get.  So I bought at market.  Good thing!  Price never went back down to the limit, so I would have missed this trade.
