With RUT up almost 20 points today, I was hesitant to make the adjustment too early. However, I always feel it's best to not second-guess the market and interject my "opinion". Following the trade guidelines takes the emotions out of the equation, so I acted according to the plan.
The next adjustment trigger point on the upside will be 1140, and remain at 1110 on the downside.
