Further lowering China exposure in my portfolios

I think it's time to reduce China risk in my portfolio and yours even further. Today, I'm selling Chinese e-Commerce and logistics company JD.Com (JD) out of my Volatility Portfolio on JubakAM.com and JuggingwithKnives.com. The shares are down 4.73% as of 1 p.m. today but they are still ahed 14.06% since I added them to the portfolio on January 22, 2019.

The shares are down 2.24% today but still up 48.62% from my initial December 14, 2008 recommendation.
