Biding my time......

This whole thing is getting scarier by the day, and with all the uncertainties, it is the bulls who are hibernating. However, nature (or should I say the human nature) rules ultimately, by saying that I mean the bears will go hibernating, maybe sooner than you thought.

I flipped 1/3 of my retirement account (moved to money market since Oct. 2007) a couple of times between money market and Spartan 500 index in the last several days, netting just over 10% and moved back in last Thursday. May flip that out again mid this week. Will consider moving all in if the market could get a quick 10-20% down from here for a multi-week, possibly a year-end rally, we shall see.

After sitting tight for 4 days, I shorted OTM puts for X, WLT and MON last Friday, all with 1/3 position size, and may consider close out the positions in X and WLT tomorrow ahead of their ER. I probably won't aggressively short the OTM puts until we are through the election, which for some reasons, is making me really nervous.

Be careful out of there!

Hi - lorazepam drug

Ativan (Lorazepam) warnings and precautions to be aware of include potential drug interactions, safety of taking Lorazepam if you are pregnant or are elderly, and the risk that some people may become psychologically or physically dependent on it.

The risk of dependence and abuse is greater for those taking higher doses for long periods of time (longer than two to four weeks).
