The markets were way overbought and last Wednesday I decided to add a couple of hedges, namely $SCO (a double inverse ETF on oil) and $SQQQ (a triple inverse ETF on the Nasdaq). The relative weight of these positions meant that as the US markets tanked about 5% on Thursday the 11th of June, my Responsible Investor portfolio was up. Only a little, but green.
If on average over the mid to long term the markets go up, and you beat them, you should do well with your investments.
Enjoy the weekend !
