If you have disposable income and are contemplating investing in the stock market because it looks like its going gangbusters, explore this idea with
your financial planner... S&P500 surpasses 1300, invest 25% of available assets into an inversely related instrument such as SDS. SDS is the ticker
symbol, essentially "shorting" the companies inside the index. Lets say S&P 500 reaches 1350 or so...lay down another 25% into sds to increase your
position and lower your cost basis. May just be S&P500 surpasses the 1400 mark. Invest the final 50% of your "disposable" income into sds, then be
patient. When the stock market "crashes" again, your investment will increase in value. Disclaimer: you may find yourself literally "cheering "
the crash on. Watching in pure "glee" as you you witness chaos. Important though that you "EXPLORE" the idea with your financial planner, and find
out for sure if you handle the "risk". There is also inverse relationship instruments for the dow 30, dxd is the ticker and the nasdaq, it would be
qid. That said, there are many inversely related instruments out there so, check w/your planner. This is my personal strategy right now and will be
implementing it beginning the day the S&P closes above 1300. But i must tell you, be prepared to be nimble and you have to "sell" these instruments
to actually enjoy a "capital gain". Work closely with your planner as that is his primary feduciary duty...to help you.
