How to Make 60% to 100% in 2014 if a Single Analyst (Out of 13) is Right – an Update

Last week we discussed vertical spreads. This week, I would like to continue that discussion by repeating some of what we reported in late December of last year. It involves making a relatively long-term (one year) bet on the direction of the entire market.

And again, a brief plug for my step-daughter’s new fitness invention called the Da Vinci BodyBoard – it gives you a full body workout in only 20 minutes a day right in your home.

Knowing When to Bite the Bullet

Sometimes, the market does just the opposite of what you hoped it would, and you are faced with the decision to hang on and hope it will reverse itself, or accept that you guessed wrong, and close out your position and move on to something else.

That will be our subject today.

Knowing When to Bite the Bullet

Kenny Rogers said it well – “You’ve got to know when to walk away and know when to run.” We set up demonstration portfolio to trade diagonal spreads on an ETP called SVXY. We were betting that the stock would go up. In each of the last two years, SVXY had doubled in value.

We felt comfortable being long (i.e., the equivalent of owning stock) in something that would do just the opposite of VXX.

In our demonstration portfolio, we decided to . . .
