We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
There are also the Direxion triple leveraged bull/bear ETF's. I do use the double's on occasion (the triples are just too volatile for me, even watching it all day), including the double shorts, but I have issues with the double short. I'm fairly certain that hedge funds are using these as part of bear raids to manipulate the market. Not so much now, but in October/November when the market would routinely crash 200 points in the last 30 minutes. I have no problem with an unleveraged short ETF, but it doesn't sit well with me that these are probably being used to artificially drive prices down.
