Commodity ETFsEdit

Commodity ETFs, also known as exchange-traded commodities (ETCs), track a commodity index or a specific commodity. This is often via commodity futures. These fall into four general categories, agricultural, which includes livestock and "softs"; energy resources; industrial materials; and precious metals. The most popular precious metals ETFs hold physical stocks of the metal rather than futures.

Leveraged & short ETFsEdit

Typically ETFs track an index. Using a combination of options, futures, and swaps some firms have designed ETFs capable of tracking approximately −1x, 2x, −2x, 3x and −3x the daily returns of an index. 3x and −3x ETFs were first released on November 8, 2008 by Direxion Funds. These funds are structured in a sophisticated way, and due to their extreme volatility they may not be appropriate vehicles for the casual investor.[5] (Note that obtaining 2x the daily returns for one year does not imply that one will receive double the annual returns of an index).[citation needed] On August 18, 2009 the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission issued a warning to investors that leveraged exchange-traded funds could lead to big losses even if the market index or benchmark they track shows a gain.[6]

Short ETFsEdit

Short ETFs enable investors to profit from declines in an underlying index without directly selling short any securities. Investors who think an index will decline purchase shares of the short ETF that tracks the index, and the shares increase or decrease in value inversely with the index, that is to say that if the value of the underlying index goes down, then the value of the short ETF shares goes up, and vice versa. Some popular short ETFs include:



  • ProShares Short Dow 30 (NYSE Arca|DOG)
  • ProShares Short S&P 500 (NYSE Arca|SH)
  • ProShares Short S&P MidCap 400 (NYSE Arca|MYY)
  • ProShares Short S&P SmallCap 600 (NYSE Arca|SBB)
  • ProShares Short Nasdaq 100 (NYSE Arca|PSQ)
  • ProShares Short Russell 2000 (NYSE Arca|RWM)
  • ProShares Short MSCI EAFE (NYSE Arca|EFZ)

Asset allocationEdit

ETFs can be asset allocation funds, which include different asset classes rather than just one. They are usually, but not exclusively, implemented using a fund-of-funds structure. The most common ones use fixed strategies, which can be described with terms like "aggressive" or "conservative", denoting more in stocks and more in bonds, respectively. Other ones may have a target-date strategy where the allocation changes over time.

An example of such an ETF is the Russell Investments OneFund (NYSE Arca|ONEF), which is composed of nine ETFs (Vanguard and iShares ETFs). Another is the AdvisorShares Cambria Global Tactical ETF (NYSE Arca|GTAA). A lineup of Target Date ETFs is offered by iShares (e.g., iShares S&P Target Date 2040 Index Fund; NYSE Arca|TZV).
