Just a quick chart, globally-exposed ETF building blocks with VTI, JNK, IGOV, and EFA.
And on the short-side, ETFs: BIL, BWX, IEI, IEF, ISHG, ITE, and TLO.
These ETFs are building blocks I’m considering for a long-short portfolio. As you can see it would be a US-equity-long, global-equity long, high-yield (junk bond) long, USD (United States Dollar) short portfolio.
I’m also very interested in call option writing to blunt some of the equity exposure, whilst still remaining equity-long.
