Guggenheim Airline ( FAA)? Oil prices have been in control of this ETF's trading pattern since Day One. FAA holds promise for those that believe crude oil prices will head back down to the $80-$85 per barrel range.

Prior to more recent concerns about Chinese demand and geopolitical unrest, commodity-oriented investments (e.g., miners, "ag," etc.) were phenomenal. If you believe that the U.S. dollar will resume a long-term downtrend and if you believe the global industrial cycle is still headed for expansion, you might want to look for value here.

The same could be said for commodity-rich Chile ( ECH) and Peru ( EPU); that is, their success is dependent on commodity demand and global economic expansion. If you're a believer, you might step up to the pullback plate.

In contrast, a direct investment in Japanese equities via Small-Cap Japan ( SCJ) may not be the best way to show confidence in a Japanese recovery. Look to Steel ( SLX), Timber ( CUT) as well as Coal ( KOL) to benefit from rebuilding efforts in the Land of the Rising Sun.
