It's so easy to drive a stock down vs. making it rise! The market on Jan 3rd 2012 at the open was 12,200 and went to 13,300 on April 2,2012. The S&P on jan 3rd was @ 1,258 and went to 1,404 on April 2nd. The NDAQ was @ 2657 on Jan 3rd and went up to 3,080 on April 2nd. My point is I have been short the market all year and now on my total portfolio is up 12.5% YTD and yes being short! So you longs might want to go back to school! By the way if you dont believe me, I made a call on optionsmonster on 3-28-2012. I said to short NFLX at 122.50 & buy the may 110.00 puts @ around 3.85. The puts have gone up to 9.00 and the stock as gone down 22.50 to 25.00 a share! Now if you took my advise, you'll want to know how to protect yourself right?If so let me know your positions and prices & i'll guide you from there!If not I wont worry about you when I'm making a big fat deposit with your funds that are now my profits!!!
