    Hi Whipsaw, you've done very well over the years and better than me for sure... This year many people including the pros got the rug pulled out from under them...so yes...that really sucks, but Your Awesome!

    I think some one last week was talkin bout stops. The pros always talk about that too! Of course they're talking about day trading, etc., but its a good thing to set a Stop no matter what. I figure 2% is my personal limit, and if only 50% invested I can withstand a 4% "market" drop in any single trade.

    BUT..When I posted my NEW Strategy earlier this week, I mentioned indicators I want to use for entry/exits and in a way it DOES have a Built-in Stop (i.e. 13 EMA crossing below mid-point of Bollinger Band=20SMA), but ultimately I want to gain and if its a stinker, I never want to lose more than 2% on a trade. That's my personal goal. Thing is that once a person has more earnings in the year, one can reset the stop point/or percentage on each trade... I'm thinking the key is to plan your Exit point and your Stop...and not hold in market on "Hope" because that is so dangerous because you can keep hoping until you've lost a lot. if your set stop is breeched, just grit teeth, close eyes and exit. Well...that's my thoughts on it..... I know others have their own methods, etc. So far this year, its worked for me to limit losses.... but wish I could make money...

    Best Wishes...Keep your chin up and God Bless You!

    Thanks, DBA! You're right on target, as usual. Looks like my exit on indicators was a week early :-/ I'm tightening up my shot group, though. Maybe we get a good reset with the china/hong kong/trade issues and then a good entry; I got dry powder!

    Yes...wish I had crystal ball to decide on possible entry today...its been going up (overall) for more than month. If I enter, everyone clear out, watch for the belly flop...

    Ok, so nothing is going according to any indicators, news, anything... I'm going to have to say *%&$ it! and jump in. I'm bleeding to death in the G fund.

    I'm in at 23% split between C & S Funds, but I'm thinking I won't try a 100% move until the next 1-day drop. Those days are still presenting fairly regularly (orange circled areas). I don't know where or when, but I'll look for a drop below the center of the channel I've drawn most likely. Just my opinion

    I am with you. I did a one day stupid jump into the F fund and today I'm getting screwed. I was thinking the markets had climbed a lot so it has to take a rest. Guess that is what I get for not paying attention. I can't remember a time when I ever made anything in the F fund. Oh well going back to my original thinking, that the markets will at least break even at some point this year (just like the Nasdaq did). That is still a few percent away depending on which one you look at. I think they want it to just to thump their chest no matter what the economy etc is doing. As for the G fund I was thinking of still staying safe but they made the G fund useless so I am electing to use the L fund as my "new" G fund until they start raising rates again which is going to be a long ways off. I realize it is 70% iG but at least it moves some. I'm sure tomorrow everything will crash being my luck LOL.

    I was looking at that, about every 7 trading days, which includes today since the last dip. I'll wait another day... :-/

    Futures are off a little, will get back in today after missing most of the run up and eating a tremendous loss. So much for testing the lows. Its only money.

    I'm betting on the market taking a huge dump starting at 1201 today. It may have already started.
