I'm still on catchup reports 1&2 but will probably follow the ones for Alpha, since that's really more applicable to me (meaning just started on them last week).

What I've been doing so far is entering all the trades into my broker workstation. Sort them by change % for that day, and then begin re-reading and putting out a limit order for the ones which have moved the least (or are in the red for the day). Because my commissions are cheap relative to my port, I'm also doing some in lots of 1/3 or 1/2.

I'm not sure if this is a great strategy or not, given the way stuff has been moving, it may be better just to dip into all of them at full allocation and not sweat it too much.
