Thanks again, Luke, to you and to Cornellengr2008 for your sage advice. I do have a much better understanding of the process, and feel more comfortable with what I've done, so far.

I also am aware of the risks and am prepared to handle what may come. But I would not have understood the process, as well, without the kindness of you both.

BTW, I also spent some time, today, learning about Simple Moving Averages SMA's and Exponential MA's (and how to focus on each to help determine long and short positions). And I found a terrific FREE site that charts my entire portfolio (and even charts Watch Lists) with the ability to modify the periods to your own liking (or to standard periods), all in one place. You are probably aware of it, already, but for those who stumble upon this thread... it can be found at:

Most brokerage services, like E-Trade, provide these charts... but you must search individually and click on each Stock Ticker to use them. lets you compile your holdings (and Watch Lists) all on one page. Of course, one can also upgrade to the monthly or annual fee (to avoid the advertising and/or to receive more comprehensive charting, etc.)
