Sell on the Pop Prospects: October 2 Edition
October 02, 2017 at 08:00 AM EDT
Here is a look at ETFs that currently offer attractive short-selling opportunities. The ETFs included in this list are rated as sell candidates for two reasons. First, each of these funds is deemed to be in a downtrend based on the fact that its 50-day moving average is below its 200-day moving average, which are popular indicators for gauging medium-term and long-term trends, respectively. Second, each of these ETFs is also trading above its five-day moving average, thereby offering a near-term ‘sell on the pop’ opportunity given the longer-term downtrend at hand. Note that this prospects list also features a liquidity screen by excluding ETFs with average trading volumes below the one million shares mark. As always, investors of all experience levels are advised to use stop-loss orders and practice disciplined profit-taking technique.
