    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.
