If you think the recent selling in equities is a harbinger of more widespread pain to come, then your broadest bet is the ProShares Short S&P 500 (SH). This inverse ETF is designed to move in the opposite direction of the broad market S&P 500 Index. Basically, if the S&P 500 were to go into correction mode, falling another 5% or so from where it trades right now, then SH would gain about 5%. Putting SH in your trading portfolio gives you an easy, low-cost way to hedge your long portfolio against further selling.
