Thank you unchanged Federal Reserve Rates and euozone debt fears for taking my CAPS rating from 95 to 85 in 3 days and decreasing my score by 500 points.  


Eh. Its my fault. Shouldn't have started experimenting with calling ETFs and thumbing down a crapload of Ultrashort ETF's this week. Talk about bad timing. 


Dear positive investor sentiment,


Please stop dying,

Don't beat yourself up for following you conviction. Thumbing down ultrashort (and ultralong) ETFs will always pay off at some point. It may be a week, a month, or a year, but eventually these calls will go your way, and then you get to harvest them.

One piece of advice: don't close any of them now. This is not real money you have at stake, and you don't need to be prepared for a margin call...

You can win using ultra and ultrashort ETFs.  You just need to have a rock solid strategy that you continually refine over time.  It may be frustrating at times as your whole board may be a sea of red if you're caught leaning the wrong way.  And be aware of the 7-day holding rule too.  So whipsaw moves are not playable here.  It's not for the faint of heart, but it can be a profitable endeavor given a winning strategy.

Best of Luck!
