There have been good days for sure, but stocks in particular seem to be sensitive to news, and when traders have this many things to worry about it is easy to find a reason to sell. We are bouncing around the highs, which leaves us with a cap on the upside and some downside risk. It may be time to get a little boring and look for reliable cash flow rather than rapid growth.
