Sometimes getting lucky is better than market timing! I had no idea there would be such a big down draft today, but I got out just in the nick of time. Woo-hoo!

It has been awhile since I made any significant trades, but last night I noticed that with the recent massive run-up in market values that the portfolio has hit a rebalancing trigger on the high end. So I sold some Total US Stock Market index ETF shares and have a limit order to buy bought some Total US Bond Market Index ETF shares. This is in an IRA, so no tax consequences.119

I agree that the market is getting quite frothy. Time to be on the defensive.

And the markets have marched even higher since I sold some shares last week. Oh, well.

Several option contracts expired in-the-money last Friday, causing me to let go of quite a bit of some hot stocks.

Stock AA is now down to 55%. Yet, the whole portfolio is still up 1.07% today, vs. the 1.62% increase of the S&P. Oh well, it's not bad for that AA.
