Hedging against market decline


Although I am not suggesting a short on the S&P 500 (despite the significant run up) and very low volatility levels, it’s probably best to hedge your position if you’re long the index.
A couple of possible hedges if you’re long SPY/SPX …
–  Long VIX calls
– Bear Call spread on SPY
– Ratio backspread with SPY puts
