It's been nearly impossible to short anything for a sustained period of time, but finally a victory. With the performance the past 2 days, I am covering almost all iShares Xinhua China 25 (FXI) short in the mid $41s, and will re-engage the short on any moderate bounce.
A few quite poor technical situations are emerging (a) FXI just created a lower low i.e. lows reached the past 2 days are below late November levels and (b) the 20 day moving average is about to cross below the 50 day moving average... hence a shorter time frame MA is crossing below a longer term, not good.
I'm starting to notice some quite substantial weakness in foreign markets... I assume much of this is due to the US dollar strength but it is something to keep an eye on. Might be foreshadowing something...
