The Return of FAZ

By -

So many ultrashort funds have turned the corner to the upside, it’s really quite surprising. One in particular is the triple-bearish-on-financials fund, shown below. It is exhibiting the same kind of pattern shared by so many other short funds: an emergence above a descending trendline that goes back for a long, long time. I’d certainly wait for prices to relax back down to the trendline, but before too long, these might be fantastic long positions.

Happily, the entire surge took place within minutes of the opening bell, and I’m ready to terrorize our South American neighbors once again. I am shorting with impunity.
