IB and Ameritrade.
IB had no shares available to short, so how in the world did you short KODK  with IB?

Did I say I shorted KODK with IB? And even if it was with IB, did you try to short at the same second that I did  :)? I have been trading for too many years and learned to use several brokers, in answering your question I listed the 2 brokers I use the most, never said I used IB to short KODK. Anyhow this trade is done and closed, I am keeping an eye on my BTCUSD short , it is down close to $2700 tonight, lowered my stop, but it looks the downside will accelerate . This trade will really ring the register. Getting ready to exit my remaining position soon.

Re: Stocks are not the only play , USDILS AND USDNOK short trade unfolding

On January 4, I posted that the Israeli shekel and the Norwegian Kroner where the best plays against the USD in the Forex market, I said if the USDILS breaks below 3.49 we go to 3.40 very fast, did so in 1 week, now if it breaks 3.40 whoever is sitting on shekels will be happy and we'll see 3.20 ,  current price 3.4044.
USDNOK down to 7.99, I am still short both , see today's charts below

USDILS  Monthly chart

USDNOK Monthly chart

https://www.tradingview.com/x/2SWw0tjv/
USDNOK short  down to 7.87 working nicely , down from 8.40 in 3 weeks, bigger down move in progress,

So which broker did you short KODK with?

And even if it was with IB, did you try to short at the same second that I did  :)
It looks like you don't have a lot of experience shorting(/trading) stocks

Traders beware. Investors are going to shine

https://www.wsj.com/articles/stocks-are-headed-for-a-fall-1516145624

That has been said many times over, and this rally has probably been one of the most hated ones. I don't know where things will go. Always a good idea to look at any part of your portfolio and ask yourself if there's value there, if the reason you invested is still valid.

This guy is someone to listen to carefully.

+1. I remember when the Dow was at 16k and everyone was saying sell.

I've had a substantial part of my portfolio in cash throughout this rally.

I did though do quite well recently on some individual stocks that I happened to buy at a bargain price. Though as pointed above, after I sold half my position in those, they shot up even more.

Either way this rally will end soon with a nice a correction which I am waiting for.

That's a relative term.

Also, always be careful trying to catch a falling knife.

That being said, if you see solid individual stocks that fall along with the market, where they reach ridiculously low valuations, it might be time to back up the truck on those specific ones.

Thoughts about investing in India?

I've been long India infrastructure for a while through INXX. There are lots of reforms there, along with many challenges, but it's the second most populous nation in the world, and population is growing (unlike China), while investment has been lagging (compared to China). Any specific stock or sector ideas (investable via ETFs or otherwise)?
