    I am trying not to focus on what I missed (bad moves in January lost all gains) and more on what I can do and what a reasonable expectation is for gains. If I can average 1% a month, that is pretty good. So yes, ride the S fund as long as I can and take it up, but if I keep focusing on how far behind I am from others, it distracts from watching the market and staying in on the way up or getting out if it is headed down.

    Very level headed approach. Good stuff.

    That is a very healthy attitude! Always Look forward, never look back or at others except to reflect on the good times, magical moments and for learning. Best wishes to You!

    Good perspective to have. I'm competitive with myself, so easier said than done for me.

    The S fund up 10% this month, 7/7 positive days; futures currently up; how much longer can this last? This doesn't seem sustainable, but I'm riding the train a few more miles at the very least, hopefully there is enough track until I decide to use another IFT.

    I jinxed the 7/7 hot streak yesterday, but looks like we might get positive bounce back today.

    The NAAIM jumped up from 79 to 110 so the smart money says we are headed for more gains. Riding the wave!

    I was fighting with myself on whether to move out of the S fund the other day, but decided to stay in and took the losses over the past couple days, so I'm obviously enjoying what looks to be a positive bounce today, hopefully not a dead cat type bounce before another leg lower, given we haven't seen a healthy pullback in quite some time. I'm planning on riding it out a few more days to see how next week goes, before jumping to safety for a while, as I know we're coming up on some negative seasonality.

    Well the bounce on Friday is certainly looking like a dead cat bounce at this point. Lets hope it turns around.

    Confirmed dead cat bounce on Friday - dang it! I should have jumped last week when I was considering doing so.
