Closing Bell Carnage

Well that didn't work out. At that point we'd shed about 45 points off the high of the S&P 500, and now we're 30 points more off that. That's just shy of 5% off last Thursday's highest price. Needless to say: my profits from the last two week are all gone, and then some. But I'm still in all my positions. The reasonably good thing about this week, and even today, is that it was all rather orderly all the way down.
