Dow is up 1173 today. Lets see what happens tomorrow. All I can say is that last weeks lesson was to ease up on the greed.

Sold a small position which I picked up a few days ago at a bargain price for quick 10%+ gain. Gotta love those $0 commissions. This made sense for a tiny balance HSA account that currently cannot be funded.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

I also took the opportunity to trim my positions down closer to cost. Would never have done that before $0 commissions.

Alright, whose the guy that bought stock in purell and then proceeded to buy up all the purell?
If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

Been there for several years now. All but given up on it. Now getting close to break even.
Bought in Jan 2018, total return now of over 85%.

GOJO is not publicly traded. But I do know people making a fortune off purell sales.
I'm not who you think I am.

I bought two lots. The smaller one is more than double. The other lot is at a loss. Overall I'm close to break even.

my personal rule is i wait for a two day reversal before buying a dip. As the virus spreads, the greater the economic impact, so not sure how anyone feels comfortable buying in until we see the end of the tunnel.

Exactly. I was pointing out that its not good to be too greedy, at some of todays gains seem to be slipping.

Look at where the treasuries and gold are. That's a fast and furious move. Didn't expect the 30yr bond to go below 1% so fast.
