IWM rose by 0.8% this week, while my account fell by 0.2%. The loss-floor has risen to -11.5%.
US markets were closed on Monday for Memorial Day.
|End of week allocations:
114% equities, 30% cash
URTY: Sold at Tuesday’s open as planned. Robot then bought it back at 11am, with a stop price above the day’s opening price. Because of Schwab’s wacky real-time data, this caused the robot to think it had stopped out at noon, so bought this “back” at 1pm with stop price still above low-of-the-day, so robot again thought stopped out at 2pm, so again tried to buy it “back” at 3pm, but was blocked due ot lack of available cash.
UWM: Buy signal for Tuesday — limit not reached. Buy signals for Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday — skipped due to accidental double purchase of URTY and the limit prices wouldn’t have been reached anyway. Buy signal for next Monday — skipped due to double URTY purchase.
cash: Settled cash went negative for Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. No complaints from Schwab, because I didn’t sell the URTY shares before the cash to buy them became available.

TNA: Stopped out.
AGQ: Stopped out at open with gap-down.
URTY ¹: Robot now thinks it should have stopped out at 2pm, apparently because the stop price was changing during the day — but this did not happen. So now I have a double-tranche of URTY, which I will compensate for by not putting in an order for UWM even though there is a continuing “Buy” signal for it.
