Two Investments That Will Benefit From Eurozone Drama

November 29, 2011

 

Investors looking to benefit from the eurozone’s debt crisis may want to look into ETFs focused on U.S. Treasury bonds and gold, as prices of the yellow metal hit historic highs and Treasurys retain their safe-haven allure, according to an article contributed by Amanda Kish to the Motley Fool.

Kish recommends iShares Barclays Aggregate Bond Fund (NYSEArca: AGG) for investors looking for broad fixed-income exposure, as well as the Schwab Intermediate-Term U.S. Treasury ETF (NYSEArca: SCHR) for those looking to solely focus on government debt.

The article also features the PowerShares DB Commodity Index Tracking Fund (NYSEArca: DBC), which fits the bill for investors looking for a diversified approach to exposure to precious metals.

Investors looking for direct exposure to gold may want to invest in SPDR Gold Shares (NYSEArca: GLD) or iShares Gold Trust ETF (NYSEArca: IAU), the Motley Fool story said.

The article stressed that the funds discussed should be seen as short-term options that can provide investors with downside protection during the eurozone’s turbulence.
