SH Factset Analytics Insight
SH offers a 1-day bet against the S&P 500 and provides the liquidity required to allow investors to use it as such. The fund, like most leveraged and inverse products, is designed to deliver its inverse exposure to its underlying index—a cap-weighted basket of 500 large- and midcap US firms selected by the S&P Index Committee—for 1 trading day. Holding it for a period longer than that will introduce the effects of compounding, even if this is less pronounced in a non-leveraged product. Still, the tool is designed to be held for no more than 1 day, or with frequent rebalancing of exposure to approximate the target -1x multiple. cr£SH is large and liquid—which is vital for a tactical tool. The fee is high, but trading costs are more important as the fund is not designed to be held for long.
