What would you all say the best ETFs to short are? (Or better yet the ETFs that will not rise, say if you were short out of the money calls) I'm looking at XLF the financial ETF and XLY the consumer discretionary ETF. Although, the XLF seems a little risky to short, given the price it was trading at 1-2 yrs ago, it seems like it has more of a chance of popping if we get a bull run, but on the other hand some of those bank stocks seem like they are out of steam. Does anyone know what actually is in the XLY "consumer discretionary" Id like to know offhand? I would like some suggestions on some good ETFs to stay short, then I will tell you all my play which includes having 0% of my portfolio in equity, Long Energy stocks and commodities/commidity stocks, and short some ETFs. Last week I read a lot of articles about how commodities are relitavely cheap here and have a lot of upside potential. And into the weekend, I have been reading a lot of articles challenging the upside to this market. I really do not believe in a MELT UP, it is more likely that this rally will stall out and be stagnant for a while, or break. I will gain 50-100% on my portfolio on this one swing trade, these set-ups do not come around often, infact I haven't seen one this good in years. If you all want to make money I'll show you how, just gimme a little info on what the good shorts are. I rarely lose money on bets like these, and if I do its minimal to the reward.
