How do I deal with inverse etfs like FAZ(bear) or FAS(bull). I know they are going in the opposite direction of their index and the rest of the market. So, If the market is going up and a chart of FAZ show its candles desending, do I short FAZ? Also,
do I stay out of FAZ so long as its candles are not desending? And I thank you for your help.

I'm no genius,I just show up every day.Inverse ETF'S are a dangerous game to play.They are extremely volatile in every time frame.They are not always 100% correlated.My advice is observe them in real time,then if you want to get involved,start of with very small size so you won't get your head handed to you.Good luck........

The efts are designed for relatively short term trading. The prospectus for some of the leveraged ETFs, like SDS, will tell you that they are designed for 1 day trades. The unleveraged etfs, such as DIA or SPY, are not necessarily more volatile than the Dow Jones Industrial Average or SP500 index but the 2X and 3X leveraged one, like FAS, FAZ, TNA, BGZ, can be highly volatile.

I understand the leveraged SHORTS close out the position every day at the close. Do the leveraged LONGS also close out the position each day?
