Take a look:- Let’s assume it’s well-intentioned, and it’s trying to give us some context of where we are in relation to previous occurrences.

We’re staying another night in Stop City having received three more exit signals. It’s more of the same really, all trailing stops for small wins and losses. That was a huge one day move in the market, but as big as it was, in the context of the length and magnitude of trends we typically …
