Ten Global Sector ETFs For Your Portfolio In June (RXI, EXI, IXN, IXC, IXG)
Global sector ETF performance update for the close of May is below and has also been updated as a free portfolio to track on my blog. Note that all of the ETFs except (NYSE:RXI) (consumer discretionary) were below the 200 day moving average at month end which in my preferred strategy would exclude them for consideration of any long position. The top three at the end of May are (NYSE:EXI) (Industrials), (NYSE:RXI), and (NYSE:IXN) (Technology). (NYSE:EXI) and (NYSE:RXI) were 2 of last months top 3, (NYSE:IXN) has replaced (NYSE:MXI) (materials). I have previously discussed some possible strategies using this data here as well as some more active trading strategies.
The momentum strategy that an investor could implement would be to purchase the best returning Global sector ETF(s) over the trailing 3, 6, and 12 months (sum). This strategy has been written about extensively by Mebane Faber, author of The Ivy Portfolio: How to Invest Like the Top Endowments and Avoid Bear Markets.
