Deutsche Bank features inverse and leveraged long/inverse ETNs for those investors wishing to hedge or speculate. We rank the top 10 ETF by our proprietary stars system as outlined below. In the case of Base Metals there are really only the top three for most investors to focus on. The rest would appear to be a little too targeted and atypical for investors. Further, the succeeding 7 issues have seen large declines in Assets under Management and the danger always exists they fail as a business enterprise for the sponsor. If an ETF you're interested in is not included but you'd like to know a ranking send an inquiry to support@ETFDigest.com and we'll attempt to satisfy your interest.

Liquidity below average We feature a technical view of conditions from monthly chart views. We recommend longer-term investors stay on the right side of the 22 weekly simple moving average which is unique from other approaches given the high volatility in commodities and contract rollover with associated contango/backwardation issues. When prices are above the moving average, look to be long, and when below remain in cash or short. Some more interested in a fundamental approach may not care so much about technical issues preferring instead to buy when prices are perceived as low and sell for other reasons when high; but, this is not our approach. Premium members to the ETF Digest receive added signals when markets become extended such as DeMark triggers to exit overbought/oversold conditions.
