|Thanks, Bob. Interesting numbers.|
Sharp moves “triggered” by defined fundamental events are always suspect. Tend to be either weird emotional reactions, or manipulations. Learned this about 20 years ago, when terrorists bombed London subway. The market jumped up like crazy (why?) - but it didn’t last.
Tried to trade swings during this decline, as a hedge, using futures. Actually, did well - but, using moderate positions, lost to the decline more than I made (hopefully, temporarily). Thinking - maybe it’s better this way. Maybe it’s worth hedging larger declines, even partially. Sharp moves are fun. Besides, it’s not like I have many better things to do… lol.
