My trading Roth IRA is up over 12% YTD and has cash in it since selling IJS. Since I see that some bond ETFs have dropped today a little bit, I used all the cash in that account to buy some bond ETFs. 524

The IJS is another account that was purchased last Thursday is simply building on its gains today. Thank goodness yesterday's limit to sell was not executed. With such nice gains, I have less anxiety about it and have no plans anymore to sell for a little while.

Update: Maybe I spoke too soon as something has happened and caused IJS to drop, but the bond ETF shares I bought are already up. The Fed's Powell must be talking today.

I've missed some great opportunities to sell the rest of the IJS that I bought back on 6/11 and have not wanted to sell at these prices which would still be a gain, but not as large as before. However, I am also getting sick of waiting for IJS to march back up to where it was, so have decided it is time to sell if I can eke out a 4-figure gain which might be possible. I've submitted a limit order to sell today and will update later. 970

Update: Order not executed. Try again tomorrow.

It is time to try to sell some IJS again since it has been up quite a bit today. I've submitted a limit order, but may switch to market order.

Also, I've decided to cut back on VTI (total US stock index) bought back in March in a rebalancing move. 324 The main reason is that I don't see any good news happening in the next week. I'll probably be wrong about that as I didn't expect that even today the stock market would be going up.

Update: I'm done selling for the day.

Oh, well, sold too soon for sure. 516 But the portfolio still has lots of equities, so the news isn't all bad.

Sorry folks, but I thought the market was going to get away from me, but lo and behold it has come back down and dropped below me. 053 My plan it is to continue hoping for the worst.
