    The current claim is that rebalancing required by covenant for pension funds exceeded what was expected. This led to the up tick in high beta stocks and a sell off in safety plays like what I own, a 6% loss on the day for me.

    Sorry to hear that. Are you going to modify your investment strategy in 2019 at all? Personally I'm going shift into oil based trading, both futures and companies that benefit from lower oil prices.

    The league standings for safety plays should hit about the same time as the trade war patch.

    Reinvesting dividends and writing options is something I control in regards to portfolio growth.

    Rebound day today. I'm up for the current year again and I have decided that I should get more anal in applying my investment criteria
