I use index timing to determine whether I should be long or short on index ETFs. I trade stocks, ETFs, leveraged ETFs, and SPY or equity options. Lives happily with two little boys and a stunning wife! Love StockTwits!
Trading triple leverage $TNA, $TZA, $UVXY, $XIV, $NUGT, $DUST. No options trading here. My posts are based on what I see on the charts. I am not suggesting to buy or sell. Trade at your own risk.
