3/23 – 3:25 p.m. New York time

My bear position on X reached its management point, 50% of maximum potential profit, and I exited. Results to come soon. I shall consider the question of re-entry on Monday.

No other trades today, so this wraps up the week.

3/23 – 10:45 a.m. New York time

All of my holdings are solidly in line with my bearish assessment except for GLD, which gapped to the upside yesterday. The price remains below the high of Jan. 26, which marked the start of the present decline, and so I am inclined to hold the position and see what develops over time.
