I've sold a lot and I'm not looking to do anything much right now apart from keeping an eye on the stope as the direction is not clear. Though Segro appears to be breaking out I'm not sure that I'd want to go for it due to the uncertainty. However, it is not an equity, it is an REIT. For context I did make some late trades this year and all bar FCCN have bitten me.

So why have I posted all these REIT charts if I am not keen on putting my money where my mouth is? Good question? Are REIT's different from equities? Am I too late for SGRO.L?

Remember Weinstein's method is all about playing the winning percentages - as he says on page 76 in the book. And if you reread the Forest to the Trees approach on page 75 you will in Weinstein's words "...find yourself heavily invested in the best acting stocks when the market is powering ahead, and sitting on large cash reserves when the overall trend turns bearish."

Another useful quote from page 339:
"Don't feel you have to 100 percent invested at all times. Differentiate between a September 1982 situation, when the indicators and charts strongly suggested a fully invested position, versus a September 1987 position when extreme caution was demanded."

I think an observation that I've had from your journal is that you haven't decided if you are a trader or an investor yet, as you seem to be trying to do both, which is possible, but certainly more difficult. So I think you need to decide which suits your personality best and then focus on learning and implementing that part of the method and try not to be swayed by what others are doing.
