Current EGG Position:
We hit our stop on IWM in the early selling on Wednesday. I looked at changing the stop to hold the position into the afternoon, but it really would have violated the discipline, obviously worked, but if you start bad habits they will bite you in the end. We retrench and look today for the next opportunity.
