Jeff Bishop of TopStockPicks.com said the current rally in small-cap stocks and the iShares Russell 2000 ETF (IWM) has been fueled by short-sellers covering their positions, and speculation of a tax deal getting done to help small companies. Both, he said, are about to end, which means that the time to short the IWM — or to use the Direxion Daily Small Cap Bear 3X Shares (TZA) — is now. Bishop on Tuesday bought 100 Oct. 20 put contracts on IWM and 2000 shares of TZA as a starter position; he plans to buy more as a one- to five-day swing trade if the Russell 2000 trades down 3 percent from current levels.

At the time this conversation was taped on Sept. 26, he had 100 Oct. 20 put contracts on IWM and 2,000 shares of TZA and he was planning to buy more as he described in the interview.
