If your stock fell 60%, then increased by 50%, you are still down by 40%.

Well Gee, Roy, I never would have guessed that. My portfolio is still down over 55% in spite of the rises.

While an increase from lows is desirable, it does not necessarily herald a new beginning. It's too early to celebrate.

What I was saying, and very clearly I thought, was that listening to all the talking heads, and news, and trolls, you would think that all of our stocks were still at their lows and sinking rapidly. You would never guess that they had risen 45% from their lows. And yes, while it may not last, sure it's cause for a mild celebration!
