For the week, the Dow Jones Industrial Average was down about 1.75% (the Nasdaq down close to 5%) which our higher than normal cash position has helped maneuver us through. As March rolls in next week, we are sticking to our plan... being cautious in the near term with our cash on hand prepared to take advantage of the next buy opportunity. - The Closer
