It is purely based on where you think it will go in the next while but it could be a good bet. It is risky and only for the riskiest investors.

It is definitely a growing industry.

HXS-T vs. XUS-T vs. VUN-T. HXF is the financial swap based ETF and the swap fee has a fee of zero. It is Canadian bank that is doing the swaps. When you sell it down the line you will have compounded the yield. There are reasons to buy into Canadian financials at this time. HXF is a good idea.
