Once again, markets made new highs last week. Things faltered a bit on Monday, but, buying continued on Tuesday. Wednesday saw a quick pullback in the morning, but, things leveled out in the afternoon and glided higher on Thursday. Friday brought a big jump as China's rate cut inspired the bulls.

We had another mixed week. But, we are still trading very small, holding mostly cash. Here are the closed trades for the week:
