(A Top Pick Dec 04/19, Down 19%) Mid-Dec to early-March is seasonality when it outperforms the market--which is something you want, not merely making market gains. However, this year, there wasn't buying demand for small caps. He sold this.

This is the catch-up trade, anticipating the rotation from the winners to the losers. The Russell has underperformed this year but has just broken out. There was a massive consolidation this summer. He wouldn't be surprised if a wider pullback, pulled this back too. Nov.9-April 3 is seasonality for the Russell 2000.

Look at the 2-year chart, which is not reaching new highs like the rest of the American market. Instead, buy the strongest index, the S&P. Also look at a mid-vol or low-volatility US ETF for safety. Avoid cyclicality.

It is a single inverse short ETF to the Russell 2000, no leverage. He is currently short the NAZDAQ. This ETF made a top with the market. If the current support in the Russell 2000 breaks than we could easily see the December lows in the market.

It got hammered. It is a seasonally strong time for small caps from the end of December into the beginning of March (7th). Tax loss selling brought it down. Revenues are focused domestically in the US.

IWM or OUSM or IJR? Granddaddy is IWM, which has already had a pretty good year. For small cap in the US, go with this because it has liquidity. You can use the options market if you want something fancier. Be careful, as this are subject to US estate taxes. In Canada, use an active manager in this space. Canadian small-cap needs an active manager, rather than an ETF.

This is the time period where small caps stocks tends to go up until the beginning of March. A lot of it is from tax loss selling that helps drive it up. The small cap sector tends to perform well at this time.

Buy iShares Russell 2000 March 2018 150 calls. This is a play on small US stocks. This index is the one which will benefit the most from the tax structure as it is currently laid out. The reason he is buying a Call is that you are going to get $6 for a call option with a strike Price of 150. The ETF is trading at about $154, so you are buying an "in the money" Call, and you are going to pay about $6 for it. You may get a dip in this index when the tax bill goes through. He wouldn't worry too much about that. If you want to wait for it, that's okay. You might want to buy half now and the other half then.
