    I appreciate the prayers and warm thoughts, Fog, jp, rmi. thank you all. I'm focusing on home life/selfcare today, housebound with steady rain. will call brother and wife tonight, am certain they are fully occupied during daylight hours with preparations for the move to yet another local-area rental by end of the month, to the extent they have energy and strength. generally check in on the parents by phone on Sundays. not easy when we are spread from coast to coast to do more than that. 3 more years to retirement date and more time flexibility for being with family, tho I could bail end of this year if it became necessary.

    Hope things get better for your family1 Will certainly add them to our prayer list. My mother-in-law just had a back procedure to repair her L-2 vertebrae by using a needle procedure to restore height of the vertebrae and filling the space with bone cement. Doesn't always work but was miraculous for my MIL. Pain was greatly reduced! Out-patient procedure.

    awesome, Scout! techniques advancing. my mom didn't describe how they actually fixed her disk, if she knows. I'll have to ask for more detail. she is definitely doing better at this point.

    Time to post something in my thread, finally have something sort of positive to say. Nothing improved with sibling situation, still barely working, not quite unemployed but almost. can't draw unemployment, no success finding another job that pays what he needs for basic barebones handtomouth living expenses. If family wasn't helping, they'd be homeless and starving, would have been months ago without family help. despite having been gainfully employed his entire adult life, 23 enlisted years in the Navy, post-Navy as big truck diesel mechanic. divorce, child support-nothing left from his pension for him to live on. literally nothing. ex has claimed it all on behalf of remaining child still at home, 4 more long years til the son graduates high school. no recourse at law. no financial resources to fight back. And no the guy that attacked and nearly beat him to death with iron bar a couple months ago-has not been apprehended. local law has no idea where to start. small mountain town, northern VA, lower-middle/middle- middle class economy, formerly thought to be a safe community. no more, never safe again.

    Meanwhile, two positives: 1) my mom's out-patient day-surgery on her spine went pretty well, not perfect but far more liveable in terms of pain and mobility at age 83. 2) Charts I watch say I might get a chance to wade into this beast of a market not too long from now. not moving til I see whites of its eyes.

    This is the early warning chart 5max10ma. I'm waiting til the 10ma x 20 ma looks similar, drops to at least -1 std dev. If the 5-10 ma chart drops to -3 or -4 std deviation first, I'll wait until the 10-20ma looks similar to that, ie drops to -2 sd. second chart shows why' I'm willing to wait for it. based on last August and January index behavior both, I would be putting it in a chunk at a time, not all at once.

    nothing new on the family front, wish I could say differently. Meanwhile, chart pattern I watch for good entry point. longtime coming but its getting closer by the day. something cautionary for all those currently in CSI to consider:

    Alevin, if you don't mind, a short explanation on interpreting this chart and pattern indicating an entry point would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks, WS
