Ask a question:


What if I want to use inverse, 1X ETFs?

Solution

No problem! To "short" an ETF, you have to have a cash, or margin, account. Which means that retirement accounts can't "short' ETFs, so of course you could use the 2X ETFs, but if you want lower exposure and leverage, you can use the following, 1X INVERSE ETFs:

DIA = DOG

SPY = SH

QQQ = PSQ

Financials = SEF

Oil = DDG

Gold = DGZ

Semis = none available

RE = REK

Materials = SBM
