Inverse index ETFs?

  1. Has anyone tried the inverse index ETFs?
    Like QID, DXD, SDS and TWM

    They equal 2X short the index.

    Any advantage/disadvantage over directly shorting index' ETFs?
     
  2. yea the risk is you lose money 2x as fast if you're wrong
     
  3. You can invest only half your money.

  5. Silly question I got into a debate with my boss over - if you were an insitution and had to report your net long/short exposure, if you were short the QID, would that be a net long or short position :confused:
     
  6. Been trading QID daily for the past 2 months. Green every day so far... the closest I have ever come to free money. Learn to recognise the extremes (then the stall) and buy. Holding anywhere from 15 minutes to 2 or 3 hours. Look for MACD crossovers, enter and place a 10-15 cent stop. The market always gives something back.... almost every day... and QID is a great way to play these pullbacks/pauses.

    It beats the hell out of BRCM, AAPL, SNDK, NVDA, etc.

    don't be so dismissive of this idea. imagine if the qid were at 100 to 1.
