Bookkeeping: Covering Energizer Holdings (ENR)

Unfortunately this week was not a fun one since the Monday morning spike over S&P 1120 stopped out most of my individual short holdings - hours before the market began a retreat of some 40 S&P points.  Talk about a classic headfake. 

One of the two remaining short positions that did not get blown out is Energizer Holdings (ENR).  I am going to use this morning's selloff to cover the position in the mid $53s, and take my 4% gain.  If the stock can get back to the $56s I'll restart a new short.

A lot of people smarter than I are saying S&P 1080 is a good support level to bounce off of in the near term.  I don't see it (I've been favoring 1070) but if the herd believes it, it can self reinforce.
