Obviously you can enhance performance trading anything long and short or at the very least hedging your portfolio during major down trends using option collars, futures or if you’re a non U.S. CFD’s
5) Linked here is an easy to learn & execute long/short trading program that has outperformed the market and captured the majority of all up and down trends since 1980.
This program is by no means the end all but it’s a great place to start and will demonstrate the benefits of trading long and short using a durable long-term trading methodology.
To walk you though the program in section 5 I’m trading is the S&P 500 futures contact from 1980 through 2019.
By getting familiar with the S&P 500 futures contact you can cost effectively hedge a diversified stock portfolio in nano seconds, 23.5 hours a day, 5.5 days a week or you can capture the trends up or down with zero restrictions on shorting.
Margin cost is also far more cost effective, current maximum margin rates for leveraged long S&P positions, 0.75% annually, on short positions you get paid 0.75% annually.
S&P futures also offer more leverage than any responsible trader would ever use (currently up to 23 to 1). Very low margin requirements, cost effective leverage and zero shorting restrictions do come in handy when you’re laying down a hedge after a 11 pm presidential tweet that’s causing a market hemorrhage.
