Commentary
BUY: DIREXION SHS ETF TR (FAZ) Rating: 1
Start Price: $26.67
Points: -106.92
Created: 06/06/2012
Based on current developments, I believe this bullish position in the Direxion Daily Financial Bear 3x Shares (FAZ) exchange-traded fund should do well, once the euphoria over all the bad news fades away.

SELL: PROSHARES TR (UWM) Rating: 1
Start Price: $39.09
Points: -73.55
Created: 04/10/2012
All things considered, this short position in the ProShares Ultra Russell2000 (UWM) exchange-traded fund should do well, assuming the liquidity-driven bubble in equity prices continues to deflate between now and the next pump by either the European Central Bank or the U.S. Federal Reserve. (Your serve, Mr. Bernanke.)

All things considered, this bearish position in the Direxion Daily Small Cap Bull 3x Shares (TNA) exchange-traded fund should do well, assuming the liquidity-driven bubble in equity prices continues to deflate between now and the next pump by either the European Central Bank or the U.S. Federal Reserve.

BUY: ULTRASHORT FINANCIALS PROSHARES (SKF) Rating: 3
Start Price: $51.28
Points: -55.13
Created: 01/26/2012
I believe there is a high probability the change in U.S. real gross domestic product to be reported tomorrow will be less than the consensus forecast figure of 3.1%, and I think there is an intermediate probability it will even be less than the consensus forecast range between 2.7% and 3.6%, so this long position in the ProShares UltraShort Financials (SKF) exchange-traded fund could do comparatively well, sooner or later.

SELL: PROSHARES TR (SSO) Rating: 2
Start Price: $50.83
Points: -98.52
Created: 01/20/2012
Fundamental, sentiment, and technical analyses all indicate there is a significant risk of either a consolidation or a correction in the large-capitalization area of the U.S. equity market at this time, so a short position in the ProShares Ultra S&P500 (SSO) exchange-traded fund may soon be nicely profitable. (Amazingly, I wrote these words one year ago today, and they appear more apt now than they seemed then. Of course, the anticipated event did not begin until Feb 18, 2011.)
