Well …

That was short-lived.

For the capital gains assets for the ‘Sharpe Income Project‘, we are buying IVV on this rally at the current prices.  Just one share, under the ETF Commission free program that many brokers offer now.  This has been noted on the spreadsheet.

If the stock indices fall, we can always buy more later and average down …

    I’m always glad when I go long around the same time as you. Sometimes I question whether I jumped the gun, or waited too long depending on the situation.

    I take my trades now regardless of what I hear from anyone else, but it makes it psychologically more palatable when I’m long and hearing other trusted traders are as well. Thinking “why is Dan short, what did I miss? Should I have waited?” really isn’t all that fun, and it’s not as easy to stop thinking that way as I wish it were.

      I know what you mean.

      You’ll get to this spot where your mind sorta says:

      “Oh that’s cool” …

      … and then you’ll just process and act according to your personal trading style regardless and you really won’t give it much mind after that. It gets to a stage where it’s a neat ‘note’ to assess, with traders I respect to this day. But then I still just go about my plan, as I was playing it, and a couple of days later I forget who was long, and who was short.

      🙂
