Yes, but notice that to have gotten the benefit of today's rally, you would have to have bought in either yesterday or last Thursday. If you were in more than a few days before that, you would probably still be way down today (based on $COMPX). We're only even now with the deep V-bottom of 11/13.

This doesn't do much good for the LTBH philosophy. Even if you're bottom fishing -- how are you going to call sharp bottoms like these? Long flat bases maybe, but not these 5G aerobatic dive-pullouts.
