    A particularly bad (as in incompetent) day for TZA: -1.92% on a day where the S&P is -.1%. Oops. So much for leveraged inverse correlation.

    • Romar: This was my technique today; I am holding 50 shares TZA but when the TNA chart was breaking out; I bot 75 shares TNA. I just sold my TNA.

    • Romar: I've done this once before and it's helped me hedge my losses considerably. So when the market does break down, I'll have more profit.
