Dow 30, Dow transports and the S & P 500 are each below Dow theory sell signal. Must wait for the close. This is for a VP, I guess.

I don't know. I tried to catch the falling crude oil knife in late 2014. It ended badly.

Bought IJS 10 min before close.
Stock portion of PP is now 55/45 S&P 500/iShares SCV.
I can only do this because other assets in the portfolio are mitigating the losses.

Purchases YTD (PP+VP)

SCV
REIT
TLT
VBTIX (Total bond market)

It’s wondeful to be heavy in stocks and still protected to the downside to the best of ones ability.

Yes, but I’m ok with that.
What I’m not OK with is stocks gaining and the PP losing.

The good ones are making a killing. The bad ones are getting killed.
Don't agree with me too strongly or I'm going to change my mind

Maybe I'm out of touch, but how can front-running lose money?
