Piling on the Shorts Again

This is a bet that the S&P 500 does not rocket to a new all time high by the May 16, 2014 expiration. The news flow this morning is giving us an opportunity to re enter the short positions that I covered on Friday. Half of the opening 80-point pop in the Dow came from […]
