There's a couple of caveats I've got to mention first here. The first, I'm not looking to add any short positions to my portfolio, because there's not a significant breakdown at this point in the indices, and to think otherwise is based more on speculation than anything else.
However, I'm constantly screening for short setups, because I'm a firm believer in being ready for possible market reversals, and when those times come, I don't want to be scurrying around looking for shorts in the process… instead I prefer to be Boy Scout ready.
Long time no see Slopers! Coming into 2012, I thought I had 2 trades for donators that were great for long-term investments and thus stopped checking the markets everyday. Unfortunately one of those trades got stopped out in May and thus had to come out of retirement.
The trade that failed was shorting the 30yr Treasuries…which went BUST as of May 2012 as it broke a 30yr resistance line which coincided with a resistance hit of the NYSE Composite(note:I am long bonds now instead of short)
