As according to the adjusted strategy outlined yesterday, I did cover a bit on weakness today, and then shorted a bit on strength. All told I managed to pare back to ~1.7-to-1 net-short overall, a level I'm more comfortable with given the present action; today was positive here, in that sense especially.
I'm heading up to the Northwest this weekend; see if I can't build a fire in the wilderness; otherwise eat raw some helpless creature in order to put this week behind me.
Wish me luck ;)
