After that previous high on Jan 26, 2018, the market dropped 10% 2 weeks later. Exciting time! Volatility ETFs and all that fancy stuff...

Anyway, if I add back to the stash the money I spent since Jan 26, I am still not up to where I was on that day. Curses. Blame it on international stocks.

I’ve already exceeded Jan 26, 2018 by a few percentage. But I did wish to sell then and buy back later, in fact I was very tempted, but I didn’t, coulda shoulda kind of thing.
