I would be long and short, and appropriately so. This reminds me of the Congressional hearings after the 2008 crash. They established that Goldman Sachs at some point was both short and long the same instruments, and thought that was proof of criminality and malfeasance. In reality, that was proof that politicians didn't know their butt from their elbow.
Clearly, being long or short the same thing makes every bit of sense when trading several different strategies!
Speaking of litigiousness... on this thread, I repeated time after time that everyone is fully responsible for their trading decisions. It's a forum where people freely exchange views and opinions. One has to be out of his or her mind to rely on this free flowing conversation for investment decisions. It really is a free for all... all opinions are welcome - and Caveat Emptor - let the buyer (in this case, reader) - beware. Everyone is 100% responsible for their decisions. Let there be no mistakes about it.
