SELL ProShares Short S&P 500 (SH)

Posted by intelledgement on Fri, 12 Aug 11

We are cashing in our short “insurance” here at a profit. We still believe it prudent to be short, and we are planning to short the Russell 2000 instead of the S&P 500 because we feel the cyclical growth slowdown that is occurring is likely to hurt smaller companies more than larger ones. However, we may wait a few days to see how the latest European can-kicking effort goes; if the market believes there is a good chance it will “succeed,” then we may have an opportunity to get in at a significantly lower price.
