.this update covers activity starting on 7/15/14 through 8/15/2014.
I am way late on this update, although I recorded the data on time, and there are some changes.
Open positions of System 12 are light. I was hoping that some of stop-outs would recover, but while some are questionable (specifically WFC), others are gone for now (like GE). I can buy back any sold position after 5 day Positioning Period (PP) elapsed, disregarding wash sales. System12 goal is to lean towards Mega Dozen (MD), but I can not stay light - I have to go for Second Dozen (SD). 4 open slots is alot, I am a bit worried.
UPDATE 8/5: after all recent stop outs, now I only have 4 positions left. I wasn't worried for nothing...he-he. System 12 is protecting itself, as it should, but really-really need to be buying something...really...
