A while ago, on one or another thread, you asked how people were using the Ark.

I dipped a toe into the water on April 6. The method was to sort by "last month" and stocks with positive performance. Then I culled the list to those that were also positive for 6 months, 3 months and 2 months. I figured this would give me a list of "what's working now". There were 9: MGA, SCHW, DE, CAT, TDY, LMT, TRMB, NXPI and LC. I invested boldly with 0.5% of my IRA portfolio.

Yesterday was another discouraging down day and I was looking for something with which to active (other than leaping off the balcony) so I played with my Ark stocks (which were now more than 0.5%). I sold the three losers (TRMB, NXPI and LC) and then doubled down on the winners. Then I went back to the Ark list and with the same criteria added RAVN, LHX, HUBS, and HON.

Lost money on all 10 purchases during the session....

Does the ark have a poop deck from which I could jump? Is it higher than my balcony??

Well, I still have 6 winners and four freshly minted losers,
