    A gain is a gain. Lost opportunity is not lost money like it could be if it does drop out. Too much bad news on the near horizon for my taste. Moved to 100 F for me today

    My gut feeling often lets me down, but I'm looking at returns too when I decide to stay in or not. During a regular year, If I could get a 1% or 2% gain for the month, I'd probably be happy. So, in that regard I'm thinking I've already done pretty good for the month of July and sitting out part way won't hurt anything at this point.

    My thoughts exactly. If I can keep stringing together 2% to 3% gain months ...

    So, it poked through the upper BB, then back in... still at a higher high, higher low if we hold another hour. I need 4.5%/mo. to get back to zero I may be screwed for this year, but I'm gonna keep working it. When are we testing the lows?

    Hang in there Whipsaw. As a wise man once said, "How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time."

    Looks like we have a nice hammer formation in the S-fund chart; maybe we break through tomorrow, my fingernails are starting to wear down.

    I guess I didn't hold on well enough, I have some left, but pretty far down in the hole still.

    But... Futures are UP big!

    Another couple of days like yesterday and I'll be in the negative high teens! Hope springs eternal! Would you believe I didn't move one spot on the AT? Kramer says end of July for a change in direction... need to keep that in mind.

    It sounds like he's optimistic about earnings next week. I hope he's right. It's not usually the best week for stocks seasonality-wise, and it's also a post options expiration week so lots of challenges.

    By the way, this is "Kramer", so I'm not sure how much he knows anyway.

    Tried to climb out of the negative open, which shows strength... CH reports NAIIM is bullish, which is good... it would be fun to bounce along the upper bollinger band for a while, wouldn't it?
