Inverse Commodities ETFs

Most of these ETFs seek to profit from declines in the commodity futures market as they are designed to appreciate in value when the price of certain raw materials depreciate in value, including precious metals, metals, oil, natural resources, grains, livestock, coffee and sugar. We view inverse or leveraged ETF categories as simply suited for aggressive investors only who are willing to accept the exaggerated returns offered by these particular ETFs and are prone to more active portfolio management. We see limited appeal for long-term investors.
