Getting Short the Financials via SKF

The time has come for me to test the water again being short financials. I will have some charts shortly but suffice to say I like what I see. I am getting short the financials via my favourite vehicle the Ultrashort Financials ticker SKF at $123.55 with a stop at the Financial Spiders ticker XLF $22.06


Good speculating to you all and never ever forget that "an investor is a speculator who made a mistake and will not admit it".
