The lone bear signal, TZA, gets struck from the list of prospects immediately. It is a bear fund, meaning it moves opposite the market, and a 3x fund, meaning it is leveraged. I provide my own directionality and leverage through options and so don't trade such funds.
IVZ and VTI, the two bull signals, both fail to make the grade because their options are too illiquid to meet my needs.
I won't be opening any new positions today based on Thursday's markets.
