Polls show majority disapprove of NAFTA


mimzy: I will reconsider my buy stop limit order, change it to just a buy. The fading really had me worried, stocks don't exhibit this decay and I'd never heard of it until I tried to short using an ETF. thank you. Oct 26, 2013 15:13:26 GMT -6
mimzy: ETFs based on derivatives are still something that are confusing to me but I'll use them. I was worried that the algos would hit the stops b4 filling the order, hence using a high volume ETF. Oct 26, 2013 15:09:05 GMT -6
jeffolie: One might short a bull ETF to gain the decay but this requires a margin position subject to changes imposed by the exchanges & brokers Oct 26, 2013 13:26:07 GMT -6
jeffolie: Holding a stop loss in these algo dominated markets almost always means the algos will hit your stops Oct 26, 2013 13:20:09 GMT -6
jeffolie: Even so, these leveraged ETFs do not create margin calls nor expiration dates thus allowing one to hold indefinitely Oct 26, 2013 13:17:52 GMT -6
jeffolie: Yes, the ETF features fading/leveraged decay because the futures and/or options used decay plus the administrative costs rise the decay, declining value ... I accept this as a cost and feature of all ETFs that purchase futures/options to maintain price Oct 26, 2013 13:15:38 GMT -6
mimzy: Sorry, here is the article http://blog.quantumfading.com/2009/06/01/leveraged-decay/ I don't post that often, sometimes computers get away from me b4 I can edit. Oct 25, 2013 20:49:11 GMT -6
mimzy: jeffolie ~ I've been reading/lurking you for a year or three now and was wondering if your could you explain how you overcome quantum fading/leveraged decay in your ETF short position of the DJIA? Oct 25, 2013 20:46:26 GMT -6
