For the very first time since I started the #FallingKnife strategy last June, the overall portfolio is slightly negative (-0.19%), not counting capital gains I’ve already taken.

The portfolio tends to recover quickly on any market rallies.

For now, I’ll just collect my dividends and continue to average down with tiny adds.
