Two ETFs For The Muddle-Through Economy

September 20, 2012


Even with stimulus by the Federal Reserve, U.S. markets and the economy will likely remain relatively stagnant, which could mean paltry returns across the board. Grappling effectively with such an investment environment might mean employing ETFs with alternative strategies, according to an article on Zacks.

The article, by contributor Eric Dutram, pointed to two such ETFs as potentially viable, arguing they serve up returns that are uncorrelated to the broader market and pointing out that both have climbed 3.2 percent so far this year. The two funds are:

  • IndexIQ Hedge Multi-Strategy Tracker ETF (NYSEArca: QAI)
  • IndexIQ ARB Merger Arbitrage ETF (NYSEArca: MNA)
