Tweaking our game-plan in short order.
Risk assets have stabilized in the near-term after a hefty drop. We are looking for a resumption of the down-move, however — at least in the near-term. Therefore, we have added a bit more short exposure in a few areas:
- We added more exposure to our hedge (short) position in the inverse Russell 2000 fund, TZA, near ~29.89 (now about ~10% short exposure there)
- We added a starter hedge (short) position in the inverse bitcoin fund, BITI, near ~35.99 (about ~0.5% short exposure…will add more into a bitcoin bounce over 22K)
- *UPDATE: We added more exposure to our hedge (short) position in the inverse Nasdaq 100 fund, SQQQ, near ~37.99 (now about ~7.5% short exposure there)*
That’s all for now. Check back on this post throughout the day for further portfolio moves. And as always, stay tuned to our DSS posts for further developments — they provide the most current updates to our investment portfolio and outlook.
