10 inverse ETFs that could benefit from #BlackMonday

The heavy selling of shares more broadly on stock markets worldwide on Monday 24 August could be good news for shareholders in 10 inverse ETF products that have been identified by data as having already offered returns of up to 200% in the past three months alone.

The data, provided by Financial Express, point to oil, emerging markets generally, and certain emerging markets specifically as key areas in which investors have made strong returns over the past month and past three months.

For some investors, however, the relatively small size of some of these funds means that they will continue to find it hard to utilise them as a hedge against further deterioration in the relevant asset classes.
