I'm wondering, why hedge financials long with a thinly traded short tech etf? Do you have a specific reason to choose TYP?

TYP has an Average Daily Trading Volume of nearly 500,000 shares !

I don't consider that to be "thinly traded" ... AT ALL !

Maybe I should have added "relative to FAS's volume" , but still, why tech vs financials?

Today for example :


FAS was DOWN over 14%

TYP was UP over 15%

-----

That's a pretty damn good "hedge" where I come from !!!

-----

In fact ... I actually made money on this god awful "shitstorm" of a day ... AND ...I slept well last night ...

...knowing that I was prepared for WHATEVER today's OPEN should bring !

-----

I'm not trying for some esoteric "Delta Neutral" trading situation here !

I'm ALSO not trying to be a hero here !

There is a time to MAKE money ... AND ... there is a time to NOT LOSE money !!!

Right here ... Right now ... I am in the "NOT LOSE" mindset !!!

-----

A Time Will Come To Make Money !

This is the "real world" !!!

HELLO !!!

I'm not questioning your hedge, I was curious at the rationale. Wondering whether you had reasons to expect tech to underperform financials in the coming days/weeks.

Enjoying this thread by the way, it has made me more aware of the implications of tails when looking at charts.
