BUY ProShares Short S&P 500 (SH)

Posted by intelledgement on Fri, 23 Sep 11

We are increasing our short position here as a hedge against the increased risk of a major sovereign debt default—or potentially a series of defaults—in Europe that could negatively impact international banks (in Europe, the Americas, and Asia) and lead to a credit freeze similar to the one we experienced in 2008. As we have in the past, we are going with the Proshares Short S&P 500 (SH) ETF, which “seeks daily investment results, before fees and expenses, that correspond to the inverse (opposite) of the daily performance of the S&P500® Index.”
