Return to Shorting SPY for fun and profit.
I have been shorting SPY to hedge my largely tech portfolio. Not a pure hedge but it has been working. Michael Murphy in Barron's presents essentially the same strategy using S&P puts. If the market goes up I will short more and will go net short at S&P around 96 or 97 . THis way I can keep my protfolio of long term holds intact and protect myself from any major downturn.

What do you SI stock mavens think of this?
