Good thing, I was beginning to get worried about being sued as pretending to be a newsletter writer (investment advisor).

It was a good call though, you gotta admit.

I'll let you know when I see the next chance to adjust those buckets.

So are you calling a top? :confused:

The time has arrived. Get it all in while you can.

why are the leveraged ones up more than they should and QID is up on very heavy volume. 44 million shares compared to 34 million average volume when the volume on the index was lighter than yesterday. nasdaq did 2.1 billion shares compared to 2.5 billion yesterday

my guess is that this was a sucker rally and people are getting into the short ETF's to be ahead of the game

It's not that easy. Bottoms are easier than tops. As soon as I can tell that a top is going to happen on a specific day, I'll be sure to update my newsletter. I'll also let the ER forum in on it as a publc service to the seniors in the forum.

P.S. For $29.99 a month, I can set up your individual PM alert. I take Paypal, no checks or cash. I usually make top and bottom calls on the day before a very large move (like the largest move in the last five years) so you must have patience. If you don't hear from me anytime soon, don't worry, I am working on my next call. If you see the monthly debit on your account you can be sure I am on the job.

100% satisfaction guaranteed, refs available on request

I did not look into it but it is likely because they use futures in those leveraged funds. If the futures closed either today or yesterday at a big discount or a big premium to fair value, it is likely causing the pricing variation you are seeing. I would say it is not significant. Sorry.

The volume is not significant, that amount of shares is really only peanuts compared to the market. A few people might be doing what you suggest, not the big money.

That guy sure thinks we haven't hit the bottom yet:

Ok, since the hour's nearly up, you'll get my hot market timing calls for free on the Forum (as a public service, is that tax deductible?) but only if you remember to ask me once in awhile.

Dang, back to the salt mines in the AM.

Someone told me this crowd was an easy sell.
