Repellent Relief

I trust everyone reading Slope – – both humans and algos alike – – took full advantage of the very powerful “sell” signal I discretely issued before all holy hell broke loose:


It’s true. My spirit was so wasted away by the day after day assault against shorts (particularly small caps) that I just threw my arms up. I still had positions, sure, but at a mere 95% commitment level, if definitely was cautious (and had dipped, at some times, to almost 70%). Suffice it to say that it was a terribly welcome change to the day. It feels like about a month since there’s been any selling at all.
