Dow up more than 500, down to 366 now. Man, that's quick. You blink you miss it.

Beefed up my DAF last year, but I’ll be giving more later when I’m not able to spend so much on myself because I’m too old to travel or get sick, or whatever.
Oh, where are we? Yes, where's the balance? That's always the problem.

On one hand, I have the pleasure of the nice and comfortable flight seats. On the other hand, the happy thought of knowing the miserable orphans, more like abandoned, in the 3rd-world orphanages that we support are getting a bit of clothes and food. Can I have both? Maybe.

That was a strong bounce off the S&P500 200dma. However, to me this means it will be tested again in the not so distant future, and we’ll see if it holds.

That will be the true test.

You talked like a chartist.

But I agree that we are not out of the woods. The recovery today, while relieving to see, is small compared to the loss yesterday. Most stocks on the S&P go up, so there's broad buying. Heck, even bitcoin is up.

Headline reads Investors say were getting back to normal. Is that the old normal or the new normal? Is there any such thing?

Everybody counts it on the way up and is a genius. Counts it on he way down and attaches it to things. You either are a believer or you're not. If you aren't get out. If you are, believe in our economy and its resiliency. In the long run it all works out assuming he next generation has the motivation to carry on the "cause"

No. One on Monday, one on Wed, and the last today. Only the one today is in the green.

Still have a lot more dry powder, but need to put it away. It's tough to sit on my hands. Bull or bear market, there's always a stock that I like to get.

PS. I need to go through my "inventory" and see what AA I will have with the shares coming via assigned options a week from now. If stock AA is too high, I will sell into rising market to reduce. If market drops, I will hold and try not to buy more.

Down 8% after a 9 year 300% run. We are a spoiled lot.

I have been watching the market minute by minute for this whole move. My gut feeling is this is something major. I hope I am wrong. Waves of waterfall drops and climax selling pausing and then repeating. Very thin markets, any up moves are swatted down with unrelenting swipes. The up move on Friday afternoon was very vertical and unconvincing to me. I fear the worst may be ahead of us.

My experience is gut feeling and investing don't mix well. It is highly likely we have weeks, maybe even months of turbulence of one degree or another ahead of us. Or not.

Hopefully I am a contrary indicator and we go back to the parabolic rise.
