Equity Opportunity

Tactical Long/Short is a proprietary equity strategy that seeks to generate capital appreciation in rising and falling markets using two principal trades. The strategy uses technical trading indicators to actively trade the SPDR S&P 500 (SPY) and the ProShares Short S&P500 (SH). During periods when a trade signal does not indicate a trend in either direction, the strategy will signal investing in cash. The strategy is directional, positioning either long or short.
