When I'm in the mood to short the Nasdaq, instead of shorting the Q's, I like to go long QID. QID is an ETF that double shorts the index. It's a great way to increase your exposure to volatility when playing a boring index. Today I bought 500 shares at $53.90.
Looking at the chart, we see that the ETF recently burst through its downtrend line on very good volume, and has pulled back on weak volume--a very bullish sign. The RSI is also particularly strong.
