Major Indexes Continue To Be Outperformed By Energy & Metals

Recent rallies in the major indexes have had a hard time hanging onto their gains lately. ETFs like XOP (S&P Oil & Gas Exploration & Production), XME (S&P Metals & Mining), and XLU (Utilities) have been experiencing capital inflows. At the same time, other ETFs such as DIA (30-Industrials), SPY (500-Large Caps), IWM (2000-Small Caps), IYT (Transports), and QQQ (100-Nasdaq Largest Non-Financial) are still in the red for the year. Our positions in energy and precious metal ETFs netted us a positive return, while our recent trades in the major stock index ETFs had already booked partial position profits, with the remainder of the positions stopping out for a small break-even profit.

SPY – SPDR S&P 500 ETF TRUST – DAILY SECTOR COMPARISON CHART     www.TheTechnicalTraders.com – TradingView TACTICAL ETFs FOR ALTERNATIVE STRATEGIES    From time to time, we get questions from our subscribers regarding inverse and leveraged ETFs. Inverse and/or leveraged ETFs are not appropriate for everyone. However, for some experienced traders, these tactical ETFs can provide alternative strategies for use in a bear market. An inverse ETF is an exchange-traded fund (ETF) constructed by using various derivatives to profit from a decline in the value of an underlying benchmark. Inverse ETFs allow investors to make money when the market or the underlying index declines, but without having to sell anything short. A leveraged exchange-traded fund (ETF) is a marketable security that uses financial derivatives and debt to amplify the returns of an underlying index. While a traditional exchange-traded fund typically tracks the securities in its underlying index on a 1:1 basis, a leverage ETF may be structured for a 2:1 or even a 3:1 ratio. These ETFs listed below track the underlying S&P 500 benchmark that represents 500 US large caps as selected by S&P’s Index Committee. These ETFs are examples of both inverse and leveraged ETFs: SPY vs. SH (1:1 or 1x leverage) – SPY (Bull) is the most recognized ETF and is typically listed in the top ETFs for the largest AUM and greatest trading volume. SH (Bear) provides 1:1 inverse exposure to the S&P 500. SSO vs. SDS (2:1 or 2x leverage) – SSO (Bull) seeks a daily 2x return of the S&P 500. SDS (Bear) provides 2:1 inverse exposure to the S&P 500. UPRO vs. SPXU (3:1 or 3x leverage) – UPRO (Bull) seeks a daily 3x return of the S&P 500. SPXU (Bear provides 3:1 inverse exposure to the S&P 500. SPY – SPDR S&P 500 ETF TRUST – DAILY S&P 500 COMPARISON CHART The following chart gives us a visual of how the ETFs mentioned above are performing against each other over the past 15-months. It should be noted that inverse ETFs carry unique risks that traders should be aware of before participating in them. Some of the risks associated with inverse ETFs are compounding risk, derivative securities risk, correlation risk, and short sale exposure risk.    www.TheTechnicalTraders.com - TradingView KNOWLEDGE, WISDOM, AND APPLICATION ARE NEEDED It is important to understand that we are not saying the market has topped and is headed lower.

NASDAQ (IXIC) At Lowest Since September 2020, Bitcoin (BTC) Price Crash

Rebecca Duthie Rebecca Duthie 13.06.2022 22:56

NASDAQ On Monday the US stock market fell into a bear market, the Nasdaq composite fell almost 4.7% during the trading day, reflecting a level not seen since September 2020. Investor sell-off sentiment is market wide, with the crypto market also tumbling as Bitcoin is more than 17% down. Investors are anxiously awaiting the Federal Reserve meeting on Wednesday as the market awaits the latest policy decision. IXIC Price Chart Bitcoin (BTC) Price sank in overnight trading Bitcoin prices sank in overnight trading, reaching low levels not seen since December 2020 in the wake of rising inflation reducing the demand for the world's largest cryptocurrency. The rising inflation, rising bond yields, the Federal Reserve’s signals of aggressive interest rate hikes and a stronger US Dollar are all factors that have combined in adding downwards pressure on crypto assets. Hence, even amidst wider crypto acceptance from governments all around the world to add or compliment Bitcoin into its national currencies. The price tumble of Bitcoin caused the cryptocurrency lender, Celsius Network to pause withdrawals from its deposit base due to what the group referred to as “extreme market conditions.” Binance quickly followed suit in the Monday session citing a 'stuck transaction' on the world's biggest crypto trading platform.
