After a 15 day trading range, the S&P finally broke out of it on day 16 intraday, but then closed back inside of the range. Is this just a new trading range with the low of 8/4/16 as the base (see chart below)? Only time will tell as we go forward next week. This is not a good market for swing trading, but my trading addiction/hobby still forced me to trade with only a minor gain. Trades this past week: KRE + .33%, XHB +1.46%, VPU -.57%, VOX -.59%. I'm back to cash in my trading portfolio going into next week.
"Is forgiveness fair? Absolutely not. But it is not about fairness. It is not about justice. It's about grace. You don't forgive a person because it's the fair thing to do. You forgive a person because it's the right thing to do, and you don't want your heart full of poison." - Rick Warren
“And that is how change happens. One gesture. One person. One moment at a time.” ~ Libba Bray
“Sometimes you need to step outside, get some air, and remind yourself of who you are and where you want to be.” ~ Author Unknown
“As one goes through life one learns that if you don’t paddle your own canoe, you don’t move.” ~ Katharine Hepburn
