Get Acquainted With These Bearish EM ETFs Now (BZQ, INDZ, RUSS)

June 22, 2012

As Chinese factory output flags, the eurozone teeters and weak U.S. economic data all drive down global stocks, investors may be able to profit by shorting certain emerging market ETFs, according to an article on Benzinga.

These ETFs, in a similar fashion to volatility-related ETFs, rise as the indexes tracking the countries they target decline, the article said.

The following three ETFs were outlined for their exposure to countries affected by falling oil prices, , slowing growth and/or political turmoil:

  • Direxion Daily Russia Bear 3X Shares (NYSEArca: RUSS)
  • Direxion Daily India Bear 3X Shares (NYSEArca: INDZ)
  • ProShares UltraShort MSCI Brazil (NYSEArca: BZQ)

Such investments are designed for short holding periods, as the performance of such inverse and leveraged funds frequently deviate significantly and quickly from movements of their underlying indexes.
