There are many subsector ETFs, and there is even a leveraged short health care sector ETF, the Ultra Health Care ProShares (RXL).
7. Sell Real Estate
New housing construction starts are still contracting, inventories of houses on the market are still much higher than normal, foreclosures are continuing at a high rate, and a new bubble of adjustable-rate mortgage resets are scheduled, which may add to mortgage defaults. There may still be fallout in commercial real estate through the rest of 2009 and beyond. Investors have been trying to look through the valley to a sector recovery starting by the end of the year. If there is realization this summer that a recovery might be much further off, this beaten-down sector could fall further, even exceeding the lows of March.
The rally from the early March bottom has seen the Ultra Real Estate ProShares (URE) gain 69% (including dividend), but this rally may be failing at resistance shown (defined by November closing lows). The failure of the rally would be confirmed if MACD starts to reverse its current uptrend.
