    The Wisdom of Half Positions

    What I am going to talk about here is annoying to some who always feel that investing is about taking bold actions.

    I was a fairly active trader, unlike what I do with equities today. Yet, even with equities, my rebalancing trades which have aided me in this volatile market mimic some of the benefits of this strategy.
    Here are some examples:
