    It is fair for me to tell what I did yesterday and today for the portfolio challenge. Yesterday I had a nice profit in NUGT but I let it go away and sold it with not much profit. Then I sold short
    TZA and went long TNA as I was expecting a rally ( See my blog published from yesterday morning)To day I closed all my positions, because I did not want my profit to slip away.

    So long everybody is allowed 100% margin,the game is fair. some brokerage firms allow 20 to 1 margin to most hedge fund companies.
    For trading foreign exchange currencies , the leverage is 20 to 1 even in usa

    Economic Analyst,

    In case of options, there is an expiry date. So 90% of option buyers lose money. Writers of options make money like crazy, because they are on other side of the trade.
    In the last 30 days of an option, it loses 60% of its value and most of them go to zero.
    This never happens in large leveraged ETFs.You have to buy and sell them based upon good technical analysis.

    For the benefit of everybody, I had a buy signal on my blog yesterday on Gold related investments. That is why I am long
    NUGT since this morning and short on TNA since yesterday. for a while I was losing on both but I am oK now.
    Trading Options is 10 times riskier than trading 3X stocks.

    I joined the new contest. I do not see my name.
    I sold short 20000 shares of TNA this morning . I am #1 on the weekly ranking and #4 in Monthly ranking even though I did not trade before today. Russell 2000 should go to May lows soon. I plan to cover my shorts at that time.

  • U.S. Equities Are Already In A Bear Market [View article]
    Most asset classes may or may not fall by two thirds in the coming decline. Why take a chance. Use the trend following approach. Go long when the technical indicators are bullish and go short when they are bearish.This way you get the best returns.

  • Why Thursday's Sell-Off Matters [View article]
    Market is going down for technical reasons.Need to follow the trends if you want to make money in both bull and bear markets. Trend in Russell 2000 has been down since July 7. That was the time to go short on IWM and TNA. Now I will wait till the trend changes and then go long. Russell 2000 goes up and down the most.

  • Bullish Case: Improving Or Deteriorating? [View article]
    Bullish case has been weakened considerably.The numbers issued by the Federal government cannot be trusted. GDP was -2.9% for first quarter and now 4% for the second quarter. This number is totally unbelievable. Russell 2000 has been weak even though DJI & SPX were making new highs. Now both of them are below 50 day moving average. I reman bearish since July 7

  • The Day I Sold Everything: Questions Answered [View article]
    The best approach is still to follow the trend. When the trend is going down, become bearish and when the trend is up , go long. I use technical analysis for that. I use Russell 2000 and its ETFs which move up and down the most ( IWM, TNA for bull move & TZA for bear move) . This way I am not dependent on individual stocks which can be easily manipulated.
