We had a 5% trailing stop set on our position in the iShares Core S&P Small-Cap ETF (IJR). The stop tripped today and closed the positon. Price paid $56.20. Price sold $76.48. I don’t see any problem holding IJR long-term; we are simply moving these funds to another small cap blend ETF that is offered commission free at my brokerage. (EES)
