There seemingly is no end to this market decline - no matter how powerful the Indicators in getting historically oversold. Even the best of pundits predicted only a minor 4% "correction", which has nearly been trebled. Even my DITM safety net was no match for this Perfect Storm of negativity.

At some point a rally will occur, but for now the market has more time than I have $$.
