I hold the minority belief that crude oil will reverse and fall steeply. I obviously can't exactly time this, but at the moment that I feel that oil has lost its edge based on some news or another factor, I believe all the bulls will take their profits and run. IMO oil has risen based on speculation. I don't think the fundamentals (demand, Fed's devalueing of the dollar) explain crude oils rise from the mid $40s in 2002 to $126 (today) six years later. I think it would be rather dumb to short crude oil ETFs in this bull market, however, particurarly because of the president's of OPEC and Sach's announcement that it may reach $200 dollars a barrel. I also don't feel comfortable shorting individual companies like Exxon Mobil. What are the best ETFs/ETNs that have an inverse relationship to the price of crude oil? I think the more conservative approach would be to buy these instead of shorting crude oil. I am not interested in specific companies, however, nor am I a fan of natural gas. I greatly appreciate any suggestions.
