Well, MON was not a position got in on with the overall view of the market is grim. so, i left FXP as my lone position. if anything, MON would serve as a point of reference in stocks that buck a bearish trend. true, no one made money sitting on the side... but one doesnt lose money either.
My lone bull in view comes up on Jan 15. otherwise, iʻm leaning on weak stocks to get weaker than the overall movement of the market prior to that date.
Oh, and we shall see if oil stays above 100. if so, USO calls have been a winner last year (of which i totally missed the boat)
