Three ETFs For The January Effect

January 03, 2013


History suggests the equity market may rise in the first month of 2013, as investors begin to focus on year-end tax liability, so investors should consider using ETFs to profit from the sale of their losing positions, according to an article on Zacks.

If you’re looking to capitalize on the “January Effect,” consider looking at these broad, small-cap U.S. ETFs, as they could provide what Zacks called a “pure play option” at the start of 2013:

  • iShares Russell 2000 ETF (NYSEArca: IWM)
  • Vanguard Small Cap ETF (NYSEArca: VB)
  • Schwab U.S. Small Cap ETF (NYSEArca: SCHA)
