Thank you Warlord for your kind words. I hope to learn from your trading pattern.
Mark, I have lost money in the market in the past and do not trade risky things, and I believe shorting stocks is risky. I also do not use 2x or 3x funds. If I use 2x fund, I cap it at 50% equity. I have done extensive testing and also significant real time trading by shorting certain ETFs. Specifically, REIT, Financials, small cap, nasdaq 100 and VXX. I am a reluctant trader and will short these only when the stars are well aligned. That is why I am a reluctant buyer of VXX, which is likel shorting the market.
Outside of VXX/XIV, I am very proud and hopeful of my REIT system, both long and short side.
I also think that my weekly QQQ signal gives a great market pulse, including on the short side.
In case you are interested, I share my thoughts on the yahoo site, which I have created largely to learn from others and do my part by sharing what I know.
