    • "I know these are large numbers and must be confusing for some people but not an increase of 41% try 0.41% increase."

      Wrong! Bloombers numbers are fine. I'll use little numbers for you WAS 1.7 Million Short. Now IS 2.4 Million short. The differance is .7 Million .7/1.7 X 100 = 41%

    • "I know these are large numbers and must be confusing for some people but not an increase of 41% try 0.41% increase."

      Write Bloomberg!

    • The put call ratio is under .30, so it is a very bullish position in the options. It was skewed last week due to the selling of puts (which are treated as purchasing puts), so you have to be careful around options expiration as the numbers aren't as meaningful. The March put call ratio is really low.

    • "I never short anything. But there are people who do and some make money and some don't. Interesting note today was in the news. The short position n AGNC went up 41% this month."

      I know these are large numbers and must be confusing for some people but not an increase of 41% try 0.41% increase.

      So one what ask "so what"?

    • I never short anything. But there are people who do and some make money and some don't. Interesting note today was in the news. The short position in AGNC went up 41% this month.
      From the Bloomberg news article.

      Short positions
      AGNC Is as of 11/15 2,398,622
      Was as of 10/15 1,695,938 Net change +41.4%

      I follow AGNC because I have a fairly large position in my ROTH IRA.

    • Move one step further and morph pairs to free bet theory and you have your opportunity.

    • I honestly don't know what you are on about. Did you mean reamed as in that shorts are being reamed, have been reamed will be reamed, etc. Or did you mean, shorts are reaming today. There was sentiment marked.

      I tried to follow your exchange with some poster named REIK on the ANH board and could not make heads of tails out of what he or you were talking about and why you were worshipping him. It almost looked like the two of you are the same.

      Anyway, if you are going to post over here, I would appreciate it if you could elaborate on your ideas so that we can understand the following:

      1) What is your sentiment?
      2) What is your strategy?
      3) How much have you invested on your strategy?
      4) What securites have you used?
      5) Is your strategy based on a global, sector or firm observation, a technical basis, etc.


      You may well have some point to make, but for now I am treating this as a scud missle from an alien who doesn't this planet often.

      • Well we arent.

        Im short 8k shares of agnc on the rally now after being long on the dip.

        Certainly i wish to trim out on a dip to stay away from its soon to be announced divi amount for the 4th quarter.

        Im net short mreits on the rise verus the general market, as well as trucks while im long utilities such as duk, etr, ed, etc.

        I have anh, ivr and cim (not too much of cim left), verus nly and agnc and a few cmo shorts.

        My game focuses on pairings and rotation within the sector.

        Perhaps you can enlighten all of us with your trading strategy as well. oh yeah feel free to use your own suggestion when explaining yourself.

        Im long about $360k versus $600k in the mreits after trimming and wish to trim even more until someone announces a number.
