Trade Alert For Equity & ETF Model
This morning we reduced our S&P 500 Short position by 50% for a couple of reasons:
- The market is very oversold on a short-term basis and could bounce on any surprise comments from the Fed tomorrow.
- We are holding a lot of cash after the sales we made yesterday, so reducing the hedge a bit here doesn’t change our downside protection much but will allow the portfolio to participate a bit better during a potential bounce.
We sold the position with a small gain after yesterday’s decline. Therefore, we don’t have to worry about wash sale rules to add it back to the model on any bounce over the next few days.
- Sell 50% of the S&P 500 Short ETF (SH)
