    So what?

    I'd rather make money than carry a superior attitude into losses.

    Just to defer the "trolls" out there.

    I am not making ANY kind of big selloff market call. Period.

    I follow and trade price. I called a selloff several days ago. We've had a good selloff in the IWM and QQQ. Now we're oversold, so I'm back neutral. Risk reward has changed. I've taken profits and and now watching. So if we rally -- thats great for me now.

    Wow. I was set up for much more of a squeeze. We are selling off -- led now by that core the experts are saying to buy; financials now -- yes a flattening yield curve does not help these names --- and I am much lighter on my short exposure. Oh well. Should we still be piling into the banks?

    Short (AMZN); (IWM) via puts, long (TLT) calls. Subject to change.

    Being careful as some of these stocks are now oversold. Covered (YELP) at 75 and it just traded 79-80!

    Nice squeeze. 45+ points on the nasdaq. I am starting to slowly sell again -- a little. Mainly index futures on (QQQ)

    Added to (AMZN) short too, refuses to rally. Resold a little (TWTR) at 46

    Buyers fight back. I covered most of my exposure on that panic break. Time for a bounce.

    Still holding (IWM) puts and (http://bit.ly/nAQRVs) calls; covered most outright stock shorts for now, great prices.

    I'll be planning to re-scale in on this bounce.

    Just get out and re-assess if you're no longer sure.

    Can't even gap up today. Good news and selling in response in the futures.

    Something tells me I'm going to regret cutting my short exposure down at the close yesterday.

    We're not that far off -- other than It's too early to tell IMO if the high beta selloff spreads or not.

    DE-Risking is by investment institutions; I'm seeing the same pattern of distribution show up daily. Simple selling without fanfare or cannons, or increase in volatility. Clearly institutional while the TV tells us to buy.

    There are several other indicators I follow that suggest caution; like the strength in the 30 year bond.

    People are going to argue about this, but firms are de-risking in preparation for the conclusion of QE. Yes, QE has little to do with the Economy -- but it has a whole lot to do with the degree of "animal spirits" in the Stock Market. 2 different things.

    The problem is, if they bring down hard the risky stuff, history tells us forced margin selling -- yes there is a heck of a lot of margin out there -- may bring down the blue chip stuff too. Hence it spreads.

    I'm short a variety of the risky stuff, that changes day to day. For example I covered a large short in ((Nflx) for about + 35 or 40 points, because it showed basing action. If it squeezes hard, I'll scale short again. I cut my exposure by the close, to perhaps net 55% short, because I caught a big move in 3 days, and wish to keep it. I plan to keep selling rallies.

    To me this is a terrible scenario to invest in anything other than safe yield plays, or treasuries. Notice treasuries are going up? Against the call of everyone calling for higher interest rates?

    For stocks, why not essentially wait 6 months -- until the end of QE is fully digested -- so how the market absorbs it's conclusion.

    Exactly. Mr market is irrational to the upside in certain sectors. I am investing in the downside of those sectors and the return of rationality to the market.
