Selling Some DuPont

Adding to My Bank and Industrial Longs

With the SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY) now down by over $4.25 a share, the market's decline is accelerating and some panic -- a necessary reagent to a tradeable low -- is coming to the fore. So, I'm moving to a slightly net long exposure after starting the...
