Just a quick note. My measures of core risk are falling. With an inverted scale this is making the core risk category go positive. None of the other measures of market health are positive yet. So if the measures of risk stay positive into the close tomorrow (Friday) the core portfolios will be adding some exposure as follows.
Long / Cash portfolio: 20% long and 80% cash
Long / Short Hedged portfolio: 60% long high beta stocks and 40% short the S&P 500 Index (or use the ETF SH)
I’ll make a post with a final call an hour before the market closes tomorrow, but wanted to give you a heads up so you can plan on what longs you’d like to hold.
