Sell Program

At the close tomorrow Visa will be added to the S&P 500. In addition Wells Fargo's weighting will increase due to their share offering. It is also possible that S&P will decide to increase Citigroup's weighting. If these changes occur we will see a $10 billion sell program at the close tomorrow in order to buy these names. I am likely to press my shorts until then. I did not cover a single short today. Have a good night.

I did not cover anything either. This is probably a sure sign we will trade higher tomorrow.

Good Luck

I am still short BAC and SPY. The next step will be to cover some shorts and move back to a neutral position. If we get a down day tomorrow I will likely do so at the end of the day.

S&P due to open 6-8 points higher. Would you short more given your conviction about the sell program? What factors may negate your theory?

I am not looking to short more. The sell program will happen. Maybethere will be enough buying during the day to overcome it but the sell program will happen.
