List of Emerging Market Short ETFs Listed on U.S. Exchanges
If you have a bearish view on the emerging market economies, these ETFs allow you to potentially profit from that view if you are correct. The primary difference between these ETFs is the amount leverage they offer. The ProShares Short ETF (EUM) has a target of -1x of the emerging market index it tracks. In simplified terms, this means that if the emerging market index goes down one dollar this ETF is designed to go up one dollar. There are also ETFs that provided additional leverage to your short position if you so desire, offering -2x and -3x daily targets.
It should be noted, that short and leveraged ETFs and ETNs are for sophisticated investors who are experienced and are aware of the risks these instruments present.
