MDM - Briefing, March 6, 2012
Members will note that due to AAPL stock, indices such as TYH and QQQ well outperformed, while small cap indices such as IWM underperformed. As we have noted in prior reports, it can be prudent to diversify into 2 or 3 or more ETFs on signal changes. Further, there are numerous ETFs in the ETF universe today, and since many correlate to a high degree, one may certainly venture outside of our brief recommended list we send out with each change in signal.
Since small caps have been lagging, one may be well suited to focus on inverse ETFs that have small cap exposure (TZA, etc).
Financials and emerging have also been weak by comparison so here is an additional list of recommended ETFs:
More suggested inverse ETFs:
SEF - Financial Select Sector Index 1x bear. Since banks are getting squeezed due to "Operation Twist", and banks in Europe are even worse off, this ETF has been one of the weakest to date.
SKF - Financial Select Sector Index 2x bear. Since banks are getting squeezed due to "Operation Twist", and banks in Europe are even worse off, this ETF has been one of the weakest to date.
FAZ - Financial Select Sector Index 3x bear. Since banks are getting squeezed due to "Operation Twist", and banks in Europe are even worse off, this ETF has been one of the weakest to date.
EDZ - Direxion emerging European market 3x bear. (The 2x equivalent from Direxion is due out later this month.)
