GET OUT OF THE S&P RUT: LOOK AT ETF'S AND INDIES

AMEX:EFA   ISHARES MSCI EAFE ETF
If you have ever spent more than a few hours in the Stocks and Indices chat room, you'll soon get the impression that the trading universe is seemingly made up primarily of E-Mini S&P Futures , SPX CFD's, and/or SPY (I probably exaggerate a touch, but that's the overall impression I get), along with a repeated frustration with the way the S&P is behaving in one way or another: the old "it shouldn't be here," "a correction is due," "who's buying way up here," etc. In short, some are frustrated, for various reasons, with the S&P or other broad U.S. market instruments.

Well, there's hope for you out there ... . And that's because the trading universe is made up of a ton of instruments that focus on various sectors, various markets, and individual companies. Naturally, some of these don't trade 24/5 like SPX500 or /ES, but if you can't figure out how the S&P , /ES, or SPX500 should be traded here, you should quit banging your head against the wall and move on to other instruments. (Unless you enjoy banging your head against a wall ... ).

Some of the more obvious things to look at are naturally instruments like GLD (the gold ETF ), SLV (the silver ETF ), and TLT (the treasuries ETF ). For non-US broad market exposure, look at things like EFA (the world market, ex. Canada and the U.S. ETF ) and EEM (the emerging markets ETF ). And for U.S. equities sector exposure, look at sector SPDR's, such as XME (mining), XBI (biotech), XRT (retail), XLF (financials), etc.

Naturally, getting into individual stocks can be a bit of a slog due to the number of companies involved. However, you can contract that universe to liquid stocks trading an average than 2 million shares daily and that are within the price range you want to devote to a play.
评论: As a premium seller, I guess I could be frustrated with the low IV in SPY, IWM, QQQ, and DIA and/or the sub-15 VIX, since I like to sell premium in those on a regular basis. However, there is premium to be sold out there, it's just not currently in those instruments; it's in individual stocks and some (though not many) ETF's ... .
