Account Net-Liq: $5,339.34 SPX value: 3,215.63 Shiller PE: 29.97 Markets continued down again today, as of this entry, S&P was down 0.84%.

What I was worried about happened

Account Net-Liq: $5,287.47 SPX value: 3,235.66 Shiller PE: 30.16 In the morning that market rallied. So I rolled my SPX trade higher again.

The market is ripping it off rallying again

Account Net-Liq: $5,259.26 SPX value: 3,257.30 Another day with large gains and I do not see where do they come from. Another frustrating day where the market goes up 1%+ or down 1%+ and sometimes more. Where are the days where the market went up and down 0.30% and we considered it a huge gain? Continue reading →
