Does any firm have a managed account program or research guidance on how to trade these?


If you are not familiar with them, they have longs, shorts, and ultra long and short(double the up or down) for most major sectors. I have noticed that they are pretty accurate in their pricing. I own SRS (the reit ultra short for me and some clients). They actually pay dividends too. You buy them all long so there is not calling to borrow stock, no put or call time premiums and you can buy them in an IRA.
 
I think the first company that can come up with some type of a managed account program could attract a lot of assets becasue this is something that could make them different from the next guy. Believe me I am not a trader, but stocks and sectors do go up and down. Oil, REITs, EAFE are overextended. SDS (S&P ultra short can hedge an account)
 
Any ideas, newsletters would be appreciated. They guys that comeon CNBC at night are talking about the OIL short now.....

You are talking about DUG - THE Oil short

 
SB has a managed account program, where the Advisor is the manager, and the portfolios are all ETF's. They run a model, which yo can follow, or you can run your own.

 there is a new ultra-inverse for China: FXP.  This one has really moved around the past few days.  FXP is from Pro Shares.

thanks guys for the SRS and DUG.

Yeah - but you have to be careful of fees in the meantime. In addition, losses have a greater impact to your $$$ than gains in ultra-anything shares. Because of this, many of these things have a hard time sticking with their indexes.
