Who knows but you won't go broke doing that.

Every time I try to build a cash position, days like this happen Smile

Added NKE, TROW, TSM, AAPL, AVGO and dabbled in names like JMIA, SBE, BNGO & PACB. All small portions.

This is what cash is for.  Smile  I like your thinking.  Bought most of your headliners today and just caught a little more AAPL, and finally held my nose and added to AVGO.    Be careful with that JMAI.  I traded it 50% ago and I was scared then.  Not sure if that "African Amazon" story is legit or not lol.  It's well hyped for now though.  What could go wrong?

My (current) portfolio is live by tech, die by tech.  I'm bleeding out now ... but like Arnold said, "I'll be back."  It might as well stay down until my bonus arrives next month.
Hang in there.  Over the years there have been many times I was waiting for new funds to be available.  Sometimes it's for the better.  None of this high flying stuff is anything like dirt cheap and you'll find some deals when the time arrives.  Pencil out a couple paper trades this week and learn how easy it is to be WAY too early jumping into the dips.  Most of us have a PHD in that.  Smile

Yeah I jumped into the dip too early yesterday.  In addition to my bonus, I am also in the process of refinancing my home and pulling equity out, so I should have lots of spending money come later March / early April.  I already have pretty much all the trades planned out.  Then I'll finally have a true DGI portion of my portfolio in addition to the bleeding tech.
I think you will be happier with that over the coming year.  All leveraged in on a couple sectors can be devastating. It's just excessive risk you don't need.  I own this T-shirt from my younger days and it was pretty damn expensive lol.  This market can pull back 10% any day, or MUCH worse over a month and you are not going to be happy.  This thread is mostly for our entertainment.  Not much fundamental analysis going on here lol.  It's about the fun part of our ports.  Swing trading and socializing a bit but to my knowledge we all have a substantial DGI portion in our overall portfolio.  If you chased dividends, that has flat underperformed QQQ and sometimes even SPY for a couple years now.  But once you are diversified you now have more options when it hits the fan.  I am buying fun stuff with more cap gain potential with income.  Let the market get hit for real and even more options.  I can dump some aristocrat that is down 15% and pick up a big cap growthy stock that is down 40%.  In my case it's my utilities.  Not afraid to dump a few shares for a small loss if there is an obvious better opportunity.  That happens pretty much every year.  It takes patience though.  Impulsiveness will get you killed.  Be picky and put all your DGI money in a few high quality DGI.      

Hope this is helpful and not too preachy.

Always helpful my friend.  And I will *try* to keep a cash position, so that every down day is a buying opportunity.  But that's hard to stay disciplined to do.

Exactly! I also blame my bad habit of following this forum. I learned so many names & investment ideas from here.

Was unavailable today at work meetings so didn't even participate in the buying today. Hate when days like this happen and cant do anything.

The only moves I made by pure luck was my limit buy on NVDA at $540 and PINS at $72. I never thought they would be filled when I put in a week ago lol.

My normal 2 and 5 shares Wink

At this point I'm not chasing TECH but have been using limit, GTC orders on some names I want to own for the future. Looks like I just missed out on a few others.

HD doesn't look bad today. I played their last couple dips and thinking about it again.  Sales COMPS are going to be really tough this year but they'll have a good spring quarter.
