NW-Bound - I find your new avatar disturbing!

As I posted earlier, it is only temporary. I really do not like it either. Hard to see out those two poked holes.

But it will be only temporary, as I like my earlier one better.

Compared to that of the European market, your return is outstanding.

Well, but not for today. The European markets didn't do badly today. The Asian markets were also up. I truly do not understand why the Dow rally fizzled out. Do I dare buy more tomorrow? Well, at 0.5% to 1% of portfolio a day to move from cash/bonds to equities, how long will it be before I cry "Uncle" and bail out? Maybe I have enough equity at 73% and should call it quit? But no pain, no gain?

I have reasons to remain anonymous. I am still w*rking, you know. I might have told too much about myself here, more than I want people I still work with to know about me.

I understand your concern. There is no reason to abandon your anonymity here, especially while you are still working. I didn't post a recent photo of myself while I was still working, either. It would not have been prudent.

However, once you have completely retired, perhaps you will decide to reconsider. Or not - - all of us have the freedom to choose how much we want to reveal about ourselves.

On one forum... was it here?.... I used a photo of the back of my head (cropped very closely so that it was unidentifiable) as an avatar.

I'll give Brewer the benefit of the doubt and will not take the above as an insult...

Back on the market, who is buying? Selling? I am debating whether to buy a bit more today, and get another 0.5% of portfolio into a leveraged ETF to benefit from a market bounce.

The correct response is "It was obvious to anyone paying attention the market was set for a fall.".

Skill and knowledge, or luck and a hunch? Who the heck cares as long as one makes money.

Jobless claims down. Asian and European markets up overnight. BUY, BUY, BUY!!!
