NEW YORK (Real Money Pro) -- Doug Kass shares his views every day on RealMoneyPro. Click here for a real-time look at his insights and musings.

A Heads Up on Bonds

Originally published at 1:54 PM EDT on August 27, 2015

Bond prices are at the high of the day and yields at the low of the day -- this is not, historically, a RISK ON message or signal.

Expanding shorts.

Position: Long TBF, short TLT

Adding to Blackstone/GSO

Originally published at 12:15 PM EDT on August 27, 2015

High yield has clearly stabilized; I added to Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit .

Position: Long BGB

Long Twitter, Short Facebook (Part Deux)

Originally published at 10:23 AM EDT on August 27, 2015

As I suggested earlier that I'd be doing, I've added to my paired trade of going long on Twitter and short on Facebook .

Position: Long TWTR, short FB

More SPY Shortin' Goin' On

Originally published at 1:41 PM EDT on August 27, 2015

I am getting much more serious on the short side with SPDR S&P 500 ETF at $199.15 now.

I have moved from modestly short today to medium-size short.

Position: Short SPY
