Inverse ETFs Soar As The Bear Bites Back (EDZ, DPK, TYP, DXD, SDS, QID)

“Global economic worries and a decline in consumer confidence weighed heavily on the equity markets on Tuesday, and exposure to reverse ETFs paid off. Investors who track the Leveraged ETFs Index are familiar with a number of 1x, 2x, and 3x leveraged reverse ETFs that profit as respective sectors or benchmarks pull back. Today, select funds are ahead by as much as 10% as the Dow tumbles by more than -200 points,” Indie Research Reports.

They go on to say, “The day’s top performers include the Emerging Markets Bear 3X Shares (NYSE:EDZ), Developed Markets Bear 3X Shares (NYSE:DPK), and Technology Bear 3X Shares (NYSE:TYP), all of which are soaring by over 9% for the session. Investors should note that while highly leveraged bets pay off big when accurate, they fall just as fast in the event of a rebound, so 3x ETFs are recommended for experienced day-traders only.”

“Just last week we noted the UltraShort Dow30 ProShares (NYSE:DXD), UltraShort S&P500 ProShares (NYSE:SDS), and UltraShort QQQ ProShares (NYSE:QID) as exchange-traded options for long-only investors to protect positions without the need for a margin account. Each is designed to track twice the inverse of its underlying benchmark, which can be a great way to isolate individual stock picks, or protect against losses without racking up multiple trade commissions. All three are ahead by more than 4%,” Indie Research Reports.
