RECAPPING THE ACTION
We’ve had a lot of action in our ETF Trader portfolio since last Monday’s Hotline. First off, we were stopped out
of our position in the Energy S el ect S ector S PDR (XLE), as the fund hit our revised stop-loss price of
$55. Now, recall that on Monday, Dec. 7, we recommended that you adjust your stop on this position due to the
weakness we were seeing in the energy space.
That weakness kicked into high gear on Tuesday, Dec. 8, and hence we were stopped out of XLE just one day
after revising our stop loss. And though we ended this trade with a 6.19% loss, we managed to escape further
damage as the fund fell much lower in the days after XLE hit its stop.
The other action we took last week was to add two new positions into the portfolio. On Friday, Dec. 11, we added the
UltraS hort Euro ProS hares (EUO), an investment that seeks to replicate, net of expenses, twice the inverse per-
formance of the EUR/USD daily price change. Basically, with EUO, you are betting on the dollar’s rise vs. the euro.
We also added the Ul traS hort Fi nanci al s ProS hares (S KF). This fund seeks daily investment results, before
fees and expenses, which correspond to twice the inverse of the daily performance of the Dow Jones U.S.
Financials index. So, if financial stocks fall 2%, SKF will rise 4%. Our official buy price on EUO is $17.98,
and the official buy price on SKF is $25.19.
I really like the prospects going forward for all three of our current ETF Trader positions. After months of protract-
ed declines in the dollar vs. the euro, the dollar is way overdue for at least a trading bounce — and possibly a nice
upside move over the next month or so. If that happens, EUO will be the fund that profits big.
In terms of financials, well, these stocks have just not participated in the market rally of late. Financial stocks are
well off of their highs of the year, and I think they will continue trading lower as we wrap up the year.
Finally, our short bond position in the ProS hares UltraS hort Lehman 20+ Year Treasury (TBT) is a trend
that I see really materializing in our favor over the next month or two. The real trend here is toward rising long-
term interest rates, a circumstance ready to explode as soon as the Federal Reserve backs away from holding down
The Fed used almost every tool in its arsenal to push interest rates down during the recession, including cutting
the federal funds rate to almost zero. And to reduce longer-term rates, it bought more than $1.5 trillion worth of
Treasury bonds and government-guaranteed securities linked to mortgages. However, that buying is slated to come
to an end soon, and that means long-term rates will rise, i.e., long-term bond prices will fall. That will be good
news for TBT.
Continue holding all three of your current positions, and make sure that you have your stop-loss orders in place
to protect you against any potential downturn in these funds.
Until our next move,
