During a bull market the IBD100 is great, but where can I find something similar for a bear market? Too bad they don't have an IBD 100 crappiest stocks in the crappiest industries to run short filters through. Or do they and I just miss it?

As you may know IBD publishes the Top 200 in their Thursday edition. I'm pretty certain they have the Bottom 200 in the same edition. Check it out.

The talking heads are preaching cost averaging down into this market.Easy for them to say,but in the last 30 days anyone holding long positions got their head handed to them.QID is looking good pulling back on the short side.But the fact is anything held in this market longer than a day is real risky business...........

I am also a user of IBD100. Miketranz summed it up for me. Lots of company risk holding overnight in this environment. A while back, I believe it was perolpeter, said to keep the complementary etfs on your desktop such as DIG/DUG, QLD/QID, XLF/SKF XNB/?, SRS/? etc..
(sorry they are not complete pairs)

Until things stabilize this is one way of playing both sides without so much volatility and company risk. I dont short stocks. Now lets see if I can follow this path myself
