Long SDS and GLD
Two new trades to report this morning. If you saw my last post, you'll notice that I mentioned some resistance overhead that the S&P could be running into. So far, that is exactly what has happened. As a result, I put my capital to work on that theory and went long SDS which is the Ultrashort of the S&P at $22.55.

My other position is long on GLD - the Gold ETF, which is bouncing nicely...so far...off of the long-term support level from November 2008; that is what you call a major long-term trend-line! And if it breaks that trend-line, I will likely sell my position and flip over to the short side. Its a major inflection point that. depending on which side of the trend-line it ends up on, will see a major move in that direction.
