Most of my positions are short. Only follow the trend. Now, it is headed down, I will short it with put options. When it bottoms and starts moving up, I will go long as well. A lot of stocks will become dirt cheap then----that is the time to pounce and go long. Most retail traders will be wiped out because they will ride the trend, all the way down. Then, capitulate and sell at the bottom. A huge waste.
