Use Short Bear Funds to Hedge Crashing Stock Markets

Stock-Markets / Financial Crash Jan 22, 2008 - 07:28 PM GMT

By: Donald_W_Dony


Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWith the introduction of the bear fund, analysts and investors have another very valuable tool to review the markets that was not available before. The use of fundamental analysis can provide investors with an inside look at the financial health of a company, its management skills and spot potential difficulties for the organization in the near future. Technical analysis allows the investor to review large numbers of securities, in different time frames, for profit opportunities, but normally only from one perspective; the buy side. The bear fund offers that mirrored image of a security that when used properly, can greatly expands the investors vantage point and provide valuable data that is not available through simple fundamental reviews or only buy-side technical analysis.


When an analyst will review the S&P 500, many traditional considerations are examined. For example, historical valuations, market breadth, rate of return, etc. Though an examination of the chart would reveal additional important data, an analyst may not see the complete picture. With the S&P 500 Bear ETF (symbol is SH) included in the total review, another viewpoint emerges. In Chart 1, the investor can see that long-term buying volume over the past year is expanding rapidly.

The main trend always goes with the volume. This means that with the increasing buying volume, the security is expected to increase in price. And this is exactly what is developing. The Short S&P 500 ProShares ETF (SH) has finally broken above a year-long resistance level of $63 with a minimum upside target of $69. This piece of data tells the investor that the S&P 500 is actually topping out after five years of upward movement and appropriate action needs to be taken.

Chart 2 of the Short Dow 30 ProShares ETF (symbol is DOG) has a similar picture. The short Dow 30 ETF has had growing volume over the past 12 months and has made a technical breakout at $61.50. After over five years of expansion, the Dow Jones Industrial Average has reached a peak and is beginning a decent.

Without the technical evidence available from the bear funds on these two indexes, a review of the S&P 500 and DJIA could lead the investor to purchase investments on the wrong side of the market.

Bottom line: The five year bull market appears to have come to completion with a peak in October. The downside is expected to continue until the end of the current business cycle in late 2009 or 2010.

Investment approach: There are bear funds now available for many markets and sectors. These securities will advance when the markets decline. Bear ETFs can provide downside hedging for long-term buy side portfolios or can growth.

Is not surprising.!!!!!

This is not surprising!!! American economy is under a huge competition with the chinese market.

The largest British Insurance corporations moved to India. Jaguar and Rover are no longer British.

The inmigration policy of the UK Government is a (double sided knife) which in long term will hurt the economy, creating more unemployment. And this is due to the EU new politic.

America sadly has been in a large competition with the Chinese markert and India, as everything is now made in china, or Thailiand, Or India... not giving chance to the Uncle SAM.

As American Economy leads Latin America, will be affected. And to an extend Australia.

Is happening... A global crash.. is on the way.

(This is also predicted in the bible).

Is not surprising.!!!!!

Quite sensible comments, until, reference given to a book (or 4) written some 400 years after the life of the main character in the book.

It is the same as me writing about Oliver Cromwell and me claiming to know what he thought. Tosh!

Predicted in the bible

To Simon Pettican

You dont need to follow what I have written here. With regards to (is not surprising!!).

You have to look yourself and the daily news (the brit economy to this year 2008 has been the worst!! in 60 years!).

The 3 corridors countries (India, Russia, Iran).. and China are getting stronger in many ways.

Look at it. Read the news it is happening!.
