I own SRCL but have taken a small loss so far.

You posted about it quite some time ago and, if you have an itchy rigger finger like most of us tend to have, you probably bought a bit too early. You might remember the discussions that I had with IcyWolf about buying before or after the bottom. I'm convinced he was right, buy later, not sooner!

For me this is an attention span problem, I forget. I've set up an alert system but even that has not been much help. Waiting for the bottom is often like watching paint dry. My current thinking is that I should watch the buying opportunities less often, maybe once a month. Instead of worrying about small misses, get meaningful moves to base trades on.

Thanks for the feedback!
