    Well, at least we were both thinking the same thing. You watch... there will be a video after the next selloff of 1% or more. Like I said earlier, the last selloff was on 19 May. Therefore, Mr. Market is due for some consolidation. So, we'll likely get a video from him very soon.

    And, I was truly wanting to believe in the retest theory. Based on historical analysis, it makes sense to believe, but as we all know, this time seems different. Saying that leads me to recall Lance Roberts chastising folks who say, "This time is different," but I think it really can be different in the short term. Will the market go down? Sure it will. But, we don't know when. Like you say, a broken clock is wrong twice a day. Analysts are right eventually as well, sometimes it just takes a little longer.

    I was also onboard with the retest (at least happening sooner) until The Fed intervened the way they did. The saying, "You can't fight The Fed", seems to be ringing true. This is unfortunate.

    Still not "headline news."

    Must not have been as bad as the the MSM was making it out to be, huh? Who'd of thunk it? I'd a thunk it... and did thunk it.

    The MSM will fire up its COVID-19 propaganda machine soon enough. In the meantime, it wouldn't surprise me one bit if the gov. concocted another quarantine in order to quell the protests/riots.

    BTW, I don't question the validity of the virus. But, I did question the motive of the MSM's 24/7 coverage of it. Of course, American's became quickly burned out and "immune" to the constant news barrage. Not good for ratings! Unfortunately, the MSM is now profiting off of George Floyd's murder.

    I think the reports of 'The Black Death' were slightly exaggerated...

    It did make for a great trading opportunity though. I missed a chunk of it by dismissing it's effect on the market, but when C/S/I recover I will be +5/6% over what I was. That will be nice.

    Odd that 'the market' is not negatively reacting to the unrest. Don't know what to think of that. Other than the market is getting bored with reacting to short term news.
    Lookin' up at the 'G Fund'!!!

    Man, the G Fund is 'earning' 0.75%.

    I've still got 13.5% of my assets in that pig. I guess I'll wait for the next 'End of the World' and get most of it back into the market...

    At one time the "G" fund was earning 6-8%.
    May the force be with us.

    Gone are the days of earning that penny about every fourth to sixth day. Now it takes 15 to 20 days.

    Truth,

    But the G Fund is always about 0.25% over the Fed Fund rate - which is influenced by inflation.

    We have no viable inflation and the Fed Fund Rate is dirt... The relative earnings of the G Fund after inflation is about the same. Just right now it is a checking account. Ugh.

    Nice rally so far this week. Who knows how much longer it will last. If I was still in, my gut would be telling me to lock in those nice gains because sooner or later the profit taking will commence. But when is the question.

    I've continued to compare what my previous buy-n-hold strategy YTD would have been with my current YTD return. Remember, before 24 Dec 2019, my allocation was 60 (C) and 40 (S).

    My current YTD: 3.26%

    If I had never made an IFT, and continued to hold 60 (C) and 40 (S), my current YTD would be: -3.65%

    It can pay to buy-n-hold. That's why I was so successful with it from Nov 2009 to Dec 2019 (over 10 years!). During that time, my account gained 281%. On average, that's 28% annually.

    Now, will that "buy-n-hold" YTD surpass my true YTD? I'll let you know when/if it does!

    God Bless
