I got spy puts, sh and sqqq at march 13, 2020 at 3:58pm during last Friday’s Trump Pump

Trump artificial stock pump today. So blatant and pointless as his lies about 1700 google engineers website for Covit19 test.Why do you need 1700 engineers to make 1 simple static page for a flowchart.

This one will probably be pretty bad since we’re (USA) is likely about to go lockdown mode (everyone home) in next 2-4 weeks. Ghost malls and cinemas. No sports, no entertainment, no travel, no shopping and no gambling. This is the heart of  USA economy. However, this recession likely will pass in 6-12 months as people fully recover from deadly beer flu.

Here’s an snippet of my email on Yesterday (march 13,2020) was the epic dump day -10%, today is the dead cat pump + 3%
I personally went hard shorting and buying puts today.

Here’s my plays to profit from upcoming downturn :

Home run put options : (High risk)  spy puts 220 april 17dis puts 60 may 15
Market ETF inverses buy: 
sh (spy short).
sqqq (3x leveraged short)
Stocks to Short (sell high buy low later): 
airlines:  BA UAL DAL
cruises:  RCL CCL
hotels:  MAR
the whole market:  spy vgt
housing:  z
I predict an insanely bloody Monday next week. 


SH: inverse the s&p 500 stock at normal leverage. aka short the market. Only hold this when you know the future’s going to be ugly. Buy this.

SQQQ: inverse the s&p 500 stock at 3x leverage. Normally dangerous to buy and hold this one if you’re comfortable with high risk. it moves 3 times faster than the inverse of the market. Buy this if you’re extra ballsy.

Two Stocks going up during Corona-recession 2020

Teladoc Health, Inc. (TDOC) [135]
Everyone’s going to hunker down in their homes while the coronavirus fear spreads.
Teledoc lets you make doctor visits and get prescriptions for drugs without going to the Doctor’s office.

Zoom Video (ZM) [113]
Zoom video enables people to have video calls and work from home. Fairly recent ipo, their product is great though. This one’s expensive but worth high risk / reward. Zoom video has been flying high since china has all their people who can work from home working from home. United States is likely to do the same soon.

Safe Stocks / ETFs to hold during turbulent times

Run to Treasury bonds or gold when you really want to stay on the side lines.

Treasury bonds are basically US govt. “I owe you” money.

TIPS (Treasury Inflation-Protected Securities (TIPS) are a form of U.S. Treasury bond designed to help investors protect against inflation. These bonds are indexed to inflation, have U.S. government backing, and pay investors a fixed interest rate as the bond’s par value adjusts with the inflation rate.) ~3%.


An ugly bloody week because of pandemic Coronavirus – Feb 25, 2020

SHY : iShares 1-3 Year Treasury Bond ETF (SHY)
lowest beta, barely ever moves, 2% dividend. fairly safe

SHV : iShares Short Treasury Bond ETF (SHV)
Ultra short term united states treasury etf super safest.

BND: Vanguard Total Bond Market Index Fund ETF Shares (BND)
This one may be affected by corporate bonds, it’s extra cheap

TLT : iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond ETF (TLT)
0.15% expense ratio, includes short and longer term treasury. Moves bit more with market

IAU : NYSEArca – Nasdaq Real Time Price. Currency in USD
Gold ETF, sit on the sides until the chaos is over.
Not good for long term investment.

If the account is for your near retirement Father/Grandpa and risk must be taken off the table. Then go SHY or just Cash
