While it’s no question that the trade wars between the U.S. and China have been roiling the markets for both respective economic superpowers, China ETF traders will often have to wait and see how the market reacts in order to play the bull or bear, but Direxion Investments offers ETFs that allow traders to play both sides.
Direxion offers the Direxion Daily FTSE China Bull 3X ETF (NYSEArca: YINN) and Direxion Daily FTSE China Bear 3X ETF (NYSEArca: YANG) to allow China ETF traders to be in the thick of the markets whether they decide to go long or short.
Today marked the official day that U.S. President Donald Trump’s administration began imposing tariffs on as much as 25 percent on $34 billion in Chinese imports. As expected, YINN and YANG reacted conversely to the tariff implementation news.
YINN boasts a one-year return of 17.58 percent and YANG is up 1.67 percent year-to-date.
Another byproduct of the trade wars has been its effect on emerging markets. Direxion can allow traders to also play bull or bear with its Direxion Daily MSCI Em Mkts Bull 3X ETF (NYSEArca: EDC) and Direxion Daily MSCI Em Mkts Bear 3X ETF (NYSEArca: EDZ).
