"In this turbulent time short ETF's gained popularity. However, if we are traders, why not just short long ETF's instead of buying short ETF's. On some platforms you can even short indices... Isn't that the same ?" - Primoz R.
Reply from Ken: Hi Primoz, only for day traders. For everyone else, for example those with IRA accounts or other non-margined accounts, they can't short the long ETFs. Also that would miss out on the opportunity to do pair-trading, as I and most veteran ETF traders do, for example trading FAZ vs FAS, or QID vs QQQ. Short ETFs can be traded in any regular account, with or without margin, and on smaller account sizes, too. Good question, thanks.

Reply from Ken: Hi Anne, that's critical... one of the things I'll be teaching is the step by step specific stop loss areas to use, trailing stops, as well as scale-in entry and exit areas and techniques for trading these while managing risk as carefully and as tightly as possible. That's Rule #1 in trading is, keep stops as small as possible, while still making winning trades overall.

"Trading ETF's keeps my premarket trade selection manageable!" - Val M.
Reply from Ken: Hi Val, very true. And in fact I use the ETF premarket patterns as lead indicators for all my stock and other trades as well. By focusing on learning how to look at directional bias based on premarket gap strength, trend and direction of ETFs like SPY (and the short ones like QID and FAZ), it shows exactly what types of trading bias and approach to have each day. I'll be teaching how that works in the complete "Trading Short ETFs" course.

" Isn't VXX a proxy for the front month futures contract in VIX? If so, what happens to the price when the contract rolls over?" - Leon P.
Reply from Ken: Hi Leon, you're right about that — the good news is that the VXX is automatically calculated in a way that takes rollover dates etc into account as it's priced into the instrument, so we don't have to worry about keeping track of rollover dates and other factors impacting the VIX. I do however keep an eye on the VIX chart and percentage change intraday and over time, to spot specific trends I can capitalize on when trading the VXX directly. Good question, thanks.

Reply from Ken: Right, Feliciano... in fact the Fidelity actual trading examples above are from my SEP-IRA, which is a non-margined account, so shorting isn't allowed in it... but trading the short ETFs certainly is, making it ideal for trading "down" markets by going long in the short ETFs during market selloffs.

"I trade the long/short ETFs (TNA/TZA, FAS/FAZ) as pairs - this allows me to rotate and catch both up and down moves." - Robbie C.
Reply from Ken: Hi Robbie - that's a very smart approach, I do that as well (and with QQQ/QID); with FAZ/FAS my favorite pair. By having entry triggers just outside of immediate s/r levels in each of the paired ETFs, it makes it easy to scale into the winning one/out of the losing one, then scale in additional size on the one making the biggest gains, on incremental moves. Also works w/swing trading, with some modifications. I'll go over how it works in the webinar.

"I like the idea of trading short ETF'S but they are out of my price range." - Julie M.
Reply from Ken: Hi Julie, the good news is, using the methods I teach, eg 5-10 shares to get started, you could trade some of them for as little as $300-$400 per trade of total capital, as you can see from the example in my 10-share TZA trades in the example above (10 shares at $40/share = $400), adding a couple of times if the trade goes in your favor; or taking a small $20-$30 stop max if it goes against you, as the goal.

Reply from Ken: Hey Ed, good to hear from you again. And right - instead of being sidelined during market selloff timeframes, it's great to be able to still trade to the long side, by trading inverse ETFs. Also I personally don't like shorting overnight (though I will for day trades), so the short ETFs allow one to build a position and swing trade overnight without being short instead. It's a great solution to the "how do I trade without going short overnight" for swing and day trades.

"Ken do you trade cups on smaller time frames too such as 2 min or 5 min or 15 min? How many new cups do you buy into. Is there a limit or just keep adding until the stop is hit." - T.S.
Reply from Ken: Hi TS, when I'm day trading the short ETFs (my favorite is FAZ), yes I'll use tighter timeframes. Limit 2-3 cups max, from 9:40-10:45am, for most trades. If there's a rare sustained rally or market selloff day, then I'll adjust accordingly and trade more cups. Tip: look for cups with high-volume closes (cups on high volume closing the trading day at new highs) between 3:15-4pm.

"Ken, do you ever play the long and short against each other? I mean, FAS and FAZ for instance. If so, how do you do it?" - Larry M.
Reply from Ken: Hi Larry, yes — steps are to look at the QMI chart, then set a series of multiple orders for each instrument, using size BASED on the direction and strength of the chart. So for example if I'm trading FAZ/FAS, with this premarket futures chart I set higher size to scale into FAZ since short bias premarket, and lower size to scale into FAS (in case the market heads up later). There's a handful of specific patterns and strategies to learn, I'll be showing how they work in the training. Great question, thanks. It's an important technique to learn how to master.

"Been wondering if going triple leveraged long on select (but, which ETF) if late pre-market sentiment is to the upside and going short triple leverage when pre-market thought to go down. What do you think?" - John S.
Reply from Ken: Hi John, right - personally, I look at the $QMI (NASDAQ premarket futures chart), to see premarket directional bias and strength, and set entries in 3x and other ETFs based on specific patterns I see in it. I'll cover that in the training in detail, it's very useful to know how to combine this indicator with scaling-in and cup pattern trading entries and exits.

"this is a very interesting concept, buying in very small quantities as you scale in. I've not seen this done before. Do you trade this way with stocks or just bear ETFs? I'd like to see more about this and also your specific entry criteria." - Bob L.
Reply from Ken: Hi Bob, I trade both stocks and ETFs using scaling-in approaches. Good question about how that works, and specific entry criteria, in fact I covered that in an hourlong webinar tonight for ETFMastery.com system owners. It's important to know; and as you can see from these examples, it's possible to scale in starting as few as 10 shares added at a time, to generate trading wins that are sizable. It's a great way to trade while minimizing risk. I made many winning trades today, as a result of scaling in on small size — it's a great feeling to "get it" right.

"I don't see how you can be consistently profitable buying such small quantities due to commission costs. Your profits today not withstanding it seems you need big volatility to be able to trade in small quantities." - Richard P.
Reply from Ken: Hi Richard, I use InteractiveBrokers.com for most of my trades, which only costs $1 per commission. That makes all the difference in the world, for why I can trade with such small-share trades and still make winning trades as I show here. Also — and this is important — all trades should be started off with small size, then leveraged up, scaled into as the trade moves in your favor. So I may start with just 20 shares (instead of 100-1k), then add another 20 shares if the first trade is in the money, then double down again as it keeps going up, til it reverses and my trailing stop is hit, locking in the profit.
It's all about keeping costs of wrong trades to an absolute minimum, then scaling into successful ones like I did in these examples, when you're right. I learned that the hard way. Back in the 90s I'd do 200-300+ share day trades from the get-go, and when I was right it worked out great, but stop losses were large as well, so I had to figure out how to solve that.

"...now we have movement and can make up for all these months of lethargic trading. There is hope! With so much negativity in the market, it would be great to have a plan in place before the next roller coaster ride of volatility comes." - Maria K.

"Ken...you are right on target with the Short ETFs. Will you be more specific on when to use what signals in the short ETF webinars?" - Larry D.
Reply from Ken: Hi Larry, yes — what I'll cover is a) how to set specific entry and exit price levels, b) what technical chart patterns to use, c) how to position-size, scale into winning trades while handling pullbacks during trend continuations and pivots effectively, and d) managing premarket minor gaps in the ETFs to enter and exit trades. And of course plenty of examples with current charts and Q&A. The biggest challenge is adding to winning positions while not getting stopped out during pullback/reversal days... I'll show how to do this, and more. Good question - thanks.
