IWM fell by 0.5% this week, while my account was unchanged. The loss-floor is unchanged at -9.7%.
World news: Things continue to go to Hell in a handbasket. The stock market might be willing to start paying attention soon — but not much yet.
|End of week allocations:
17% short equities, 63% cash
ATML: Earnings disappointment on Wednesday.
YHOO: No solid news on Wednesday; just rumours that its Alibaba subsidiary might buy it after Alibaba’s IPO. The SMA(s) indicator is hovering near zero, so this could sell next week.
[me]: The solid gain on YHOO this week exactly cancelled out my losses on everything else, so if YHOO drops next week then the losses will come home to roost.
Schwab decided to change their quote-fetch service so now I have to re-login before every quote. Also, the format of the quote was changed so I had to update my parser.

AGQ: On Monday, I bought additional shares to bump this up to a standard tranche size. As it turned out, I shouldn’t have bothered. Once again, sold this because price dropped below SMA(s) while CHANDELIER(-) was above that.FRED: Price has been falling, but is still above where I should have bought.
