    Back a few years ago when a bunch of us were talking about "stops" we knew with only 2 IFT's a month that it would be difficult. The conversation was mostly around personal "stops", a dollar number or a percentage. FOMO was always the gorilla in the room though when it came to making a decision.
    May the force be with us.

    I was looking at 1150 as it was at support, and somewhat below where I thought a dip would reach, so I would be less likely to prematurely bail and see the market keep trucking on up for the rest of the month. Assumption being if it goes that far south, it will likely go farther.

    Futures were down overnight, but recovering; I'm thinking another up day.

    So... the market is at resistance, potential for a post holiday reversal, rising wedge which tend to break down, OC pointed out 'flat top, market drops' and his omni turned red; RWTrader indicator has the market in the 'bullish reversal zone,' stochs are maxed out which had generally proceeded weakness, rising tensions with China in the news. In striking distance for new IFTs after next week. I can go to G with one move, or to F and then G... I'm thinking a move to the F-Train for the 4 days of next week. Thoughts?

    The rally is definitely weakening as it flaunts with the 200-day average.

    100% F COB... maybe I'll walk away with a good 1+% for my foray into the market this week. Its a start. Have a great Memorial Day weekend. Say a prayer for the Service Men and Women who gave their last full measure in defense of this great nation.

    Well, that didn't go as planned! Futures are up! Hopefully I don't eat too much on the F-train!

    Still positive but falling. It's the last hour of trading that is so frustrating.

    I decided to stay in last week based mostly on the 13 dma remaining above the 20 dma. Of course I am only 25% S fund, not having the confidence to buy in more when I entered the market, so there's a regret, but hey happy to have some skin in the game.
    I pride myself on the fact that I will never have a cheesy "uplifting" quote in my signature block...Ever!
