Shorting the Market
Equities have been way too high recently. Their recent climb is unsustainable. Talk all you want about the Obama confidence factor and the programs he has initiated. The underlying facts remain unchanged. Our financial institutions are hiding guhgillions of dollars of bad debt on their BSs and either they take the hit soon, or the government continues to backdoor bail them out and Treasuries climb higher and higher as people worry about inflation and sovereign solvency. One of these two factor is coming in to play SOON. I'd be heavily short the market over the next 3 months and long mattress manufacturers.
