If The Market Stumbles, This Inverse ETF Could Make A Run (SSG)

“The ProShares UltraShort Semiconductors ETF (NYSE:SSG) — This ETF seeks daily investment results that are twice the inverse of the daily performance of the Dow Jones U.S. Semiconductor Index.  After falling from a high of over $90 in February 2009, this inverse ETF appears to be forming a solid bottom. In early May, SSG broke through its bearish resistance line, and for four months, it has been consolidating between $15 and $19 under a compound top,” Sam Collins Reports From Investor Place.

Collins goes on to say, “A break through the top in early August drove SSG to the $21 zone, but it quickly reversed and fell to the important support line at the 50-day moving average.  If the market fails to break out above the double-tops described in today’s Daily Market Outlook, then SSG could be a good bet for a run to $22 to $24.  Keep in mind that this “ultra” ETF is very speculative, as leveraged ETFs entail unique risks over periods as short as a single day. The SEC warns that they are not suitable for all investors, especially long-term investors. Results can be affected substantially by compounding, and returns over longer periods will likely differ in amount and even direction, so these products require active monitoring and management.”
