Leveraged Short ETFs

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.(Note that obtaining 2x the daily returns for one year does not imply that one will receive double the annual returns of an index). 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.

Short ETFs

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: DOG)
ProShares Short S&P 500 (NYSE: SH)
ProShares Short S&P MidCap 400 (NYSE: MYY)
ProShares Short S&P SmallCap 600 (NYSE: SBB)
ProShares Short Nasdaq 100 (NYSE: PSQ)
ProShares Short Russell 2000 (NYSE: RWM)

Fund of funds ETFs

There are also ETFs that are composed of a collection of ETFs, similar to Target Date mutual funds. An example of such an ETF is the Russell Investments OneFund (NYSE: ONEF), which is composed of nine ETFs (Vanguard and iShares ETFs). A lineup of Target Date ETFs is offered by iShares (e.g., iShares S&P Target Date 2040 Index Fund; NYSE: TZV).
