There was basically no point to getting out of the market before the crash. (I didn’t).
Amazing recovery. I’ve been trimming my vp, though.
Seems logical to trim some gains on shares purchased during the decline (no tax implications). I convinced myself to at least rebalance to the more aggressive 80/20 stock allocation and not all the way back to 70/30.

Oh yeah, trimming is often sensible. And I have to admit I was envious of Ocho when I learned that he did more than trim at just the right time. Envious no longer.

Ocho started posting less frequently even before coronavirus hit. I hope it’s not my fault. I know he wasn’t happy with some of my posts about immigration and ICE happenings.

Last time I saw him here, he was threatening to quit his job since some of his coworkers were refusing to wear masks. So maybe he’s been busy with that.

I put him on ignore quite awhile ago. He wouldn't discuss issues without irrelevancies due to TDS.
