The NDX is about 4% for this week high and my systems are looking now for short opportunities. The option system are mainly in cash with little risk.
My view is that the market can become very volatile and the capital at risk should be review. Many large players have made fortunes in the last decade years and they should not be willing to risk those gains in a 20 or 30% correction like they did a year ago. Derivatives is one of the best ways I know to hedge those gains.
