I am going to cover here, and see if there can be an oversold bounce in the next week to re-engage.
This is in no way a 'fast money' trade, but after covering Monday I placed a limit order to reshort at $90.40 which just hit. Very content with the execution on this one. Looks like there was some sort of spike on today's bond auction:
I am hoping this ETF rallies north of $92, so I can short more at a better long term price but we were able to cover at an extreme low and get back our position with a 1.75% better price. For a relatively slow moving object like a bond ETF that is a very good swing for 3 day's work. For now we simply did a 1.2% allocation, and hope to lose money on this first tranche so can build up the position at higher prices in the intermediate term. The ETF seems to have some decent support around $89.00. If not, at least we have some skin in the game if the ETF falters again soon.
