Moving into the following week I will be creating a balanced portfolio of choice stocks, commodity shorts and taking a moderate short on the VIX.

As I am unsure which direction the market will go this week I will be looking at a potentially sideways trend with limited upside potential in stocks.  Hedging the portfolio in a manner that diversifies potential trends will be the best way to proceed.  A list of positions on the US market open are listed below:

Longs:

C-PJ, DOW, GE, GPRO

Shorts:

TVIX, SEA, BHP, BRSS, COPX

Hopefully there are no major market shocks, as either a larger than expected ramp, or a crash would see this strategy failing.
