Are there securities (ETF-like) which move opposite to a particular sector? i.e., How can one bet against a sector in a IRA-type acct where shorting is not allowed? I know buying puts on ETFs is an option, but I don't think that will work well for me. Is there another way? I am not aware of any sector futures that trade actively either. (Is there?) Are there "bear" sector funds that can be bought in anticipation of a downturn in a sector? I'm looking for the major sectors (energy, housing, semiconductor, financials etc ) Thx in advance.
