Bearish On SS iShares Dow Jones US Real Estate (IYR) For Hedging QE Tapering Risk

|Includes: DBC, DXJ, EEM, GLD, iShares U.S. Real Estate ETF (IYR), SLV

We observed some emerging QE tapering worries in the macro assets, not
yet in the equities market of which the trends remain healthy and stable.

- US Dollar index (DXY) bouncing slightly, USD/JPY broke below 98
- 10-Y Note broke below 20D MA -- we have been bearish
- Gold miners and Gold are consolidating slight, as SLV/GLD heading
towards downside
- Japan (NYSEARCA:DXJ) below 20D MA -- we have been bearish
- Emerging market bonds ETF below 20D MA -- we have been bearish
- Commodity ETF (NYSEARCA:DBC) broke below 20D MA
- REITs ETF (NYSEARCA:IYR) broke below 20D MA

- Emerging markets ETFs are mixed, most are relatively stable for
instance, as Argentina (BATS:ECH) is very weak
- Basic resources sector remain strong in Europe and US

We advise remaining bullish on equities generally, entering short sale positions
on the mentioned weak macro assets for hedging.
