Our bearish base case scenario

Its a great feeling to wake up to the realization that our anticipation and planning for several months comes to a very fruitful conclusion this morning..  We had watched the sea of red in the futures market over night but was still amazed to see a fall of 1000 Dow points in the first hour of trading. We have been anticipating a bear market for about a year and positioned our clients in a very conservatively in July, but didn’t expect this crash so soon.  I remember back in August of 1987 that it was a rough month as well but the real crash didn’t occur until October.   September could be another bad month as well. This morning we sold our profitable short positions in China A shares “CHAD” and Emerging Markets “EUM”.   We’ll revisit them and others at a point later in time.  We do expect some sort of big equity rally at any time now.  We remain holders of our largest positions in long dated US Treasury bonds.

Vasi was a male Akbash that we adopted in 2007 from Pyr Rescue in Black Forest, Colorado. He was an abused dog; yet he thrived from day one on our ranch until he passed away in 2013. Akbashes are Turkish working dogs, and he did work. Regardless of how cold and forbidding a high mountain Colorado ranch can be in the Winter he never voluntarily spent a night indoors. He was a natural born protector and quickly became a beloved part of our ranch community. Vasi means “great” in Turkish (a fitting name). We now have four rescues, Luka, Tony, Kit and Alexei—and we would like to thank all of those that work tirelessly to rescue and rehabilitate mans’ best friend.
