No collapse today. Here is the breadth breakdown in the market, via Stocklabs. Too strong in big caps to see any tangible drop in markets today. I sold my TZA and reshuffled again, down about 35bps for the day.
My daughter is graduating HS tomorrow, so I will be out of pocket. I cannot believe where the years went and I know it’s cliche to say that but fuck. I sometimes wish I could make them all (my 3 kids) little again — keep them about 8 years old forever. Life was better then — but that’s just me being selfish. Going forward, as my kids grow older, I will try my best to empower them and help them into adulthood; but as you know, life has a way of being the ultimate teacher, so sometimes the best help is to leave them alone. My entire life has been about raising my family and trying to give them a better life, better than what I had, and to raise happy children who could thrive in the world. This is a lot harder than it sounds due to all of the variables. Sometimes when you bottle them up and keep them in a bubble, it works the opposite of what you intended, so there has to be a balance. Either way, I am both sad and excited to see her graduate, as it marks an end of an era and beginning of a new one where she will be traveling far away to college to pursue her dreams.
As for the market, trading slow as molasses dripping off a summer table in the middle of a corn field in July.Comments »
