Since you asked, I did a quick!!! calculation.As previously posted, in a correction(and regettably, even in a bear market), historically, I've just reduced my equity exposure-say 20%ish to 30ish% Net Long in a correction and 10-15% Long in a Bear market-but THAT was without ANY hedging(remembering, of course that 40% Long is average for me and 60-65% is "pedal to metal in a CLEAR ST AND LT uptrend).Hedging/shorting is an art form and it requires learning and HUGE cojones:).NOT COUNTING my LONG mutuals(which is sort of like not paying attention to the elephant in the room:), I'm STILL net LONG single owned equities vs, Short ETFS.However, I HAVE taken profits in UVXY(and won't be going THERE again-it's for ACTIVE traders) and I skimmed a bit off SH and banked it.Glad you asked.I was too lazy to do it.So, for the FIRST time EVER, I AM hedged somewhat(didn't much believe in it-but it HAS worked-beginner's luck?:)I'm just LONG by nature and NEVER short individual stocks-personal moral hazard.Can "rationalize" shorting indices.
Krammer is now waxing ebullient long macro-wise-as was Lison.Bad sign IMO:)
That's why I posted new string."Reply" wouldn't work for me either!!! .Yahoo(especially Yahoo Finance) is just AWFUL!!!!!! I don't care if Melissa whatever is running Yahoo or what #s they post.I'd NEVER buy it-period:)
