It seems I am struggling to figure out how to trade this market. It's probably best I step aside then. My focus on the 20 day MA is a good rule -- it seems all the strong stocks move above the line. Below is a time of consolidation and danger -- and that's where most of the stocks I follow are.
However, the HAO is above its 20 and consolidating there -- this may not be such a bad time in a few weeks.
I need to relax. Observe more, trade less. See what is working. IPXL was one I bought and it immediately went up. Those kinds of over-the-20-day stocks are working still.
You can't always win when the markets are not moving. So stay focused.
