A small recovery, I hope

May 14th, 2009

Since I’m in short positions all over the board today’s markets is a bit worrisome. The OMXS30 closed up 1.21% after trending around opening price most of the day. The move upwards came when the NYSE/NASDAQ opened and started trading with small movement (now they’re both up at about 1%). I took a large position in XACT Bear early in the morning that I decided to have over night. I’ve put quite tight stop-loss orders in place at 4% down.

The US Financial sector is recovering today, I am sorry to say. My position in SKF is taking some damages, but I will stick with it for the time being. The Short term trend is still down. SDS is doing better for now and I am definitely staying for the week. I’m putting a stop-loss at 10% on both SKF and SDS. Early in the trading today I sold of the FAZ I bought yesterday at a small loss of 1%. The 3X is just to agressive to have when the markets are going the other way (even if it’s just for the day).

Since I’m travelling from Bremen, Germany to my home in Sk√∂vde, Sweden tomorrow I am a little bit worried about my positions, but I am trying to convince myself that the stop-loss’es will save me some of it if the upwards movement continues.
