DARK HORSE HEDGE – rides again but getting off the RAIL

By Scott at Sabrient and Ilene at Phil’s Stock World

Tuesday’s housing report set the tone for a continuation of the weakness in the market we have seen since August 10, 2010.   DHH short tilt has allowed us to capture some nice profits on the way down.  S&P 1050 is a possible support area as indicated on the chart (at PSW) and so we feel it is a good time to get off the RAIL which we suggested shorting on July 29, 2010 at $24.25 and has given us a profit of 11.71% in just under 30 days.  We believe there are other opportunities out there that give us a better risk/reward now that RAIL has shed 11% of its value and will replace it shortly.
