ETF Deathwatch For April 2012: 308 and Climbing

April 13th, 2012

Ron Rowland: The quantity of products on ETF Deathwatch now tops 300 for the first time. A total of 308 (220 ETFs and 88 ETNs) made the list this month. The net increase of 17 resulted from 37 additions and 20 removals. Six of the removals were fund closures, while the other 14 had increases in assets or trading activity.

Most of the products on this list face a real possibility of closure if they fail to attract additional assets. However, the potential for closure is not the biggest risk with these products. Instead, the biggest risk is that they suffer from extremely poor liquidity today. Wide bid/ask spreads, little to no volume behind the quotes, and sleeping market makers can potentially inflict much more damage to the unaware investor than a fund closure.

On the last trading day of March, a total of 184 ETFs and ETNs had no trades for the day – zero volume. More than 12% of the 1,438 ETPs listed for trading that day did not trade. Six of them went the entire month of March with zero volume. Such illequidity is a real danger to investors.


One of the most important aspects of ETFs is their ability to create and redeem shares through in-kind exchanges. This is what makes them unique and prevents the formation of discounts and premiums. However, this process requires volume. The creation/redemption process typically involves 50,000 shares of the ETF. For the ETFs on Deathwatch, it takes weeks or months to generate that much volume. For them, the creation/redemption process is virtually non-existent, destroying the ability to arbitrage the price to the net asset value.
