Just wonder if you play against the overall market, by picking the weakest among the strong, you can still win. A guy named yuri111 on forums back in 2003 before dispeared, always short short short, in bull and bear markets. His performance is 20%-100% a year with 8 winning streak years. I learned the bad by shorting TASR, and lost a lot, since then I only LONG LONG LONG. I have a feeling that the market may have a correction in 2007. I wonder if I still LONG LONG LONG in a bear market, will I keep my performance in 2006. So I ask how your shorts are doing in the 2006 bull market.
