**This post is in regard to a paper-traded hypothetical portfolio and does not reflect real market activity**

I expect that this quarter ahead may be more rocky than this past one. After a great first quarter ending today, I think it's quite possible that the pullback many have talked about may come quickly. So I will make a small flight to safety and hope to be accompanied by others. I don't expect to hold this position for a long period of time, as I am bearish on the dollar and treasuries long-term. However I see it as a good position in the short term to protect against a market downturn.
