Tom Sosnoff’s Positions

By:Michael "Dr. Data" Rechenthin

We spoke with a trading legend to understand what he’s doing in the markets

From the March 19 Cherry Picks, which you can sign up for here:


Long /ZB and /ZN: Sosnoff is speculating on falling Treasury yields by being long on 30-year bond and 10-year note futures respectively. Reminder: price is inverse to yields.

Long /6J: He has a long position in Japanese yen futures. He is betting on the yen appreciating against the dollar.

Long /RTY and Short /ES: Sosnoff’s strategy involves a pair trade favoring small-cap stocks (Russell 2000) over large-caps (S&P 500), hinging on stronger performance from smaller companies. For less exposure, he could opt for micro futures (/M2K vs /MES) or exchange-traded funds (ETFs), such as IWM vs. SPY.


Short SPY and QQQ: He is anticipating a potential decline in the U.S. stock market and Nasdaq 100 index.


Long Boeing (BA), Tesla (TSLA) and Apple (AAPL): Tom's bullish bets on these three companies.

Short Microsoft (MSFT) and Nvidia NVDA: Shorting Microsoft and NVIDIA.
