I'm re-establishing a new iShares Russell 2000 (IWM) short at $118.25. I'm now back to slightly net short. I was taken on my SPY and QQQ short offerings at $206 and $104.50, respectively. I am taking a small short in Microsoft (MSFT) at $47.17. If you get Goldman Sachs' research, check out their reiteration of an Underweight on Jan. 21. Twitter (TWTR) is up nealry 7% in the last two days and I am taking off a third of my long (which I purchased earlier this week "in the hole"). I'm selling at $39.45 or lower. I'm maintaining the stock on my Best Ideas list.
