Thinking on who was short UBER

Markets

I have been pondering who was shorting UBER. Hedge funds bet big on it, retailers would only be long, most institutional are long only, and that leaves the question who was on the short side? While it is possible that some hedge funds reversed to short based on new information, I think most likely the […]

Good strategic time to add to UBER

Markets

I think now is a good time to add to any UBER positions. Thesis for the trade/add is extreme poor sentiment, improving price, and knowledge from published reports that hedge funds have bet big on UBER.

Longer-Term Market Outlook

Markets

I wanted to identify a few themes I am weighting on the longer term. My basic thesis is that the market will remain bullish until uncertainty around the 2020 election causes a profit taking opportunity. I have not looked at this quantitatively: however, I think the top is likely to be around September 2020. This […]

Micro E-Mini Game Changer

Markets

The Micro E-mini futures are a real game changer. Because of the e-micro futures, I am working to rapidly automate many of the dozens of strategies I have developed over the years but never deployed. I have deployed some of these strategies, already. One question I have asked myself is why haven’t I had more […]
