Short ETFs: A Top 10

Page 1 of 11

Want to find the best or biggest short ETFs for you?

As you know, Exchange-traded funds or ETFs, offer an investor the possibility to put his money in a bunch of companies, and at the same time benefitting from stock-like price fluctuations. Usually, ETFs track the performance of a commodity or an index. Unlike other investment funds that try to outperform indices or the market in general, ETFs just track their activity, so in this way, ETFs have benchmarks represented by the aforementioned indices or commodities.

So, ETFs behave the same way as the indices or groups of securities they track, which means that as the price of the benchmark increases, so does the price of an ETF, which means that speculative investors can profit from price fluctuations. However, there are also ETFs that can be used to obtain profit from a decline of a benchmark. These type of ETFs are called “Short ETFs” “Bear ETFs,” or “Inverse ETFs.”

Short ETFs

Basically, short ETFs work by using short selling, which means that the seller of an inverse ETF sells it before owning it, hoping to purchase this ETF later at a price that is lower that the price at which he sold his shares in an ETF. The similarity between a stock and an ETF comes also in form of short ETFs.
