The best use of a "disaster hedge" is not to get a smooth portfolio value, but to raise cash
at the precise time that you can invest the money in things that are so cheap they'll go up a lot.
Something like 18% of my portfolio value is in cash solely from disaster hedge profits I closed in the last couple of weeks.
I'm shopping for deals.


This whole post is great advice on how to make some cash under these market conditions. Thanks...doc
