Back from Vacation and February results

Vacation was great!  Barb and I went on a cruise with Barb's sister and her husband.

Lots of markets moves occured while we away, that resulting in stop triggering in HGI, PIO, PSP, TUR, IXN, and IDX. As of this morning all the all positions sold off are down a combined 1.95% from where we sold at.

For January, we were down 4.00% for the month.  The S&P 500 beat us a again being only down 3.65%.  I had trouble getting end of the month numbers for the S&P 1200, so I am comparing against the similar MSCI All World index, which was down 4.38% for the month.
