Thoughts on today and going into Tomorrow
I added to some of my shorts today: HYG, JNK, GOOS, NFLX, XLY. I am adding slowly each day as I don’t know how long this bounce will last, but I definitely have not covered any shorts yet. I continue to watch very closely. The dollar is still very strong and bond yields are inverted so there are no signs of this bear market being over. Let’s see what happens tomorrow.
That’s all for now,
