JR
seems like you've been shorting the banks since ANZ was $14. I seem to recall this is probably the 3rd top you've called for ANZ. Take a look at a 2 year chart and see if you think the same thing.
How about you also tell us when you close out the short positions as well so we can tell whether you are "just flapping in the breeze" (to use your terminology).
When you sell short do you actually "sell short" or use puts? Wouldn't puts be less risky than shorts?
