Preface for each of these parts: Some recent success with short sales, even in the face of lifetime index highs on a virtually daily basis, have emboldened me during this long weekend to offer up my entire collection of existing short positions.

Enjoy the long weekend, and I hope some of these charts appeal to your desire to sell ’em short:

Hello from Flatland. I’m traveling all day today, so you’re not going to get the usual torrent of content. I will say that I’m pleased to see – – could it be – – a second day of weakness in equities. I hope D.C. rides to the rescue. Won’t someone think of the children?

I’ve got 50 short positions, some of which I’ve been augmenting quite a lot lately (particularly in energy), and I remain long SDS and ERY in my “etf-only” account.

Anyway. Back on February 1st, I did a post called A Fool and His Money, which was a fairly epic post, partly about a chap who called himself “Yolowolf” who ostensibly lost a $2.5 million inheritance with really horrible “trading.” If you haven’t read the post, please do, as it’s quite good.
