He generally doesn’t like Bull and Bear ETF’s. Doesn’t use them in his practice. These types of things are often re-priced on a daily basis so you need to watch them very, very closely.

Don’t hold for a long-term. You will be burned. Great for daily or weekly trades or you will get hurt.

Uses derivative contracts so it will suffer from tracking error relative to TSX 60 turned upside down. You could use this one effectively for some shorting of the market. If you are going to hold it, keep a careful eye on it and be ready to pull the trigger and pull out whenever it is right.

S&P/TSX 60 Bear+ ETF. Performance of this is indicating that TSX has been going the other way. Not so sure TSX is going to fall off a cliff unless something blindsides us in the next 2-3 months. Not a big fan of the double up on a short in the Canadian market.

2 times leverage. You have to be careful in terms of how you follow it. You have to be certain it is tracking the way you want it to. Also see HYG-N, which is leveraged to Canadian dollar.

Historically it makes sense to look for an entry point into this one, but the fundamentals don’t look right. You want to see signs that a sign that a trend is established before going in.

S&P/TSX 60 Bear+ ETF. Would encourage investors to use a small portion of their portfolio to get a little bit of defensive protection. This is a double short so if you use 2.5% of your portfolio, it would react as if it were 5% of your portfolio. If he is wrong and the market goes roaring, the other 97.5% of your portfolio will cover it. Not a long-term hold.t

This is an inverse ETF and so there is erosion of capital when it re-calibrates.

S&P/TSX 60 Bear+ E.T.F. This is a “double” levered play and there is erosion to the initial value. If your timing is good you can do very well and this is the secret of this type of ETF. If there were another 10%-12% in the market, he would be into this one.

(A Top Pick Aug 29/08. Down 17.8%.) Beta Pro TSX60 Bear + ETF. After he recommended this, there was a stunning decline in the market and this went up more than 50%. Given his outlook on the market currently, he would be inclined to be heading back into this.

TSX 60 Bear+ ETF. If you own, this will have paid off very well in the last few days. He thinks we are still in a trading range environment and are probably at the lower end of it. He would take profits.

S&P/TSX 60 Bear+ ETF. A way of shorting the TSX 60. It is 2X giving twice the torque. People feel blue chips are more stable but often are hit more percentage wise than the market as a whole. It is somewhat wary of Beta products, as you have to be very nimble in order to make money. Can be very difficult for the average investor.

Double short on the S&P/TSX 60. This is for traders as this can move up or down very quickly. You need to have a good market sense. Doubles are for traders, not for buy and hold. For short-term trade, he believes the market could drop in the next 30 days.

This is a way to protect you against a downfall. This one is a double short. If the market goes down, you double your money. Could be dangerous if you do more than you should. (Consult your financial advisor.)

HXD-T and HFD-T are for traders. 2X market risk every time you buy them. Very volatile. Would have been a great play while the financial markets where tanking earlier in the year.

This is a Short of the TSX. Essentially a bet that longer-term we are going to see the TSX lower than it is now. For every $1 you put into it, you get 2 times the leverage. This will hedge the risk in most people's portfolios a great deal. No more than 25% of your portfolio.

This gives you double the exposure to the market. If the market goes down 10% this will go up 20%. A nice way of not putting a lot of cash into a position but getting yourself lots of leverage.

BetaPro S&P/TSX 60 Bear E.T.F (HXD-T) and BetaPro S&P/TSX 60 Bull E.T.F. (HXU-T) are great for short-term trading. This is a leveraged short ETF. When the markets go down, it tries to do the inverse. It uses futures contracts underlying it. Would be little more cautious for long-term trading. For more sophisticated investors.

This is not a recommendation for individuals who want to go short on the market, but is using it as an insurance product. If you have a balanced portfolio and you are nervous about the market, rather than selling your securities and you have a bit of cash; you can put it in this, no more than 10%. It'll cushion the down side.

Feels the market is going to retest its lows before there is any sustained move to the upside. For a short-term trade today this will give you twice the exposure to the down side on the TSX60. (Sell it when you retest the lows.)
