Model Portfolio Changes

|Includes:AEP, ARRS, CLW, DY, Fiserv, Inc. (FISV), TIN

Last week the market was down a little and a few of my holdings tracked below their 50 Day Moving Average and didn't look like they would recover so we trimmed them out. BarChart links included below. The changes are :

Sold all these positions:
S&P 500 Fund -- Fiserv Inc FISV
S&P 400 Fund -- Dycom Ind DY, Temple Inland TIN
S&P 600 Fund -- Arris Group ARRS
New High Fund -- Amer Electric Power AEP
Strategy Lab Fund -- Clearwater Paper CLW

No Changes to the Short Fund - big surprise???

Since the Value Line Index was down 3 straight days in a row last week and is trending below its 20 DMA I won't replace any positions until I see it trending above its 20 DMA again. If today is another down day I will add some short positions to my Short Fund.
