Ultrashort ETFs: Now It's Less Embarrassing to Admit Owning Them

Jul.10.09 | About: ProShares UltraShort (SRS)

Why do I continue to hold the majority of my ultra short ETFs? Because they are no longer acting like basket cases. In fact, most of them are forming beautiful looking bottoms and the charty geek in me cannot resist bottoms like this, especially when they are doing a good job of protecting my bullish positions in some of the smaller gold stocks.

Here is SRS, the ultra short real estate ETF acting nicely inverse to the IYR chart shown yesterday and trying to confirm a breakout.
