Just Closed My Short S&P Position

|Includes: SPDR S&P 500 Trust ETF (SPY)

 I have just closed my S&P Futures position at 878.50. The financials opened strong and I fear that they might rally. Bank stocks are tricky and we never know what to expect. Maybe the upbeat moves in banks are related to this Bloomberg news, "JPMorgan Chase & Co. stands to reap a $29 billion windfall thanks to an accounting rule that lets the second-biggest U.S. bank transform bad loans it purchased from Washington Mutual Inc. into income". The usual mess.


I have also closed half of my short oil position so I am pretty light, sitting on the cash I have just made. 

Maybe I will re-short S&P`s later on.

Have you read the article I suggested you in the last post? Very good material. (posted on the Oil Trader`s Blog)
