Painful grind

Since I opened short positions last Thursday (I started few shorts even before that, but was hedging them heavily) in just 3 days SPX is right at my “risk/stop levels”.

If Tuesday/Wednesday there will be no turnaround or market will put on its rally hat again – I am taking my losses (about 7% of portfolio as of today) – it always better think when you are on cash.
