At Tuesday’s high, the S&P 500 had officially risen 26% off its lows. The magnitude of the rally, coupled with improving technicals, is providing plenty of evidence that the bottom could be in. Unfortunately, bear market rallies have a history of looking very convincing before the bottom falls out. To prepare for this possibility, I’ve identified three smart bear trades.
Stock picking remains a challenge due to market correlations running hot. Furthermore, as we’ve seen just this week, sometimes the weakest stocks rally the strongest as shorts get squeezed, and bargain hunters finally pounce. Retail, restaurants, airlines and casinos found themselves among Tuesday’s biggest gainers.
So rather than run the risk that we deploy a bear trade on the one or two tickers that don’t drop like everything else, we’re using the following ETFs:
- SPDR S&P 500 ETF Trust (NYSEARCA:SPY)
- iShares Russell 2000 Index (NYSEARCA:IWM)
- Energy Select Sector SPDR (NYSEARCA:XLE)
If you’re willing to bet the recent market rebound is a ruse and stocks will begin falling afresh, then these trades are for you…
