Specifically, investors can look to the the Chaikin Power Gauge, a multi-factor stock selection tool that may help create a more diversified solution to potentially enhance returns over time. ETF investors may gain exposure to a diversified multi-factor approach through the IQ Chaikin U.S. Small Cap ETF (NasdaqGM: CSML) and the large-cap version tracking the same smart beta Chaikin Power Gauge strategy, the IQ Chaikin U.S. Large Cap ETF (NasdaqGM: CLRG).

CLRG provides investors and advisors with a powerful tool as they consider their domestic equity positions for the year. CLRG is the second ETF designed to leverage the Chaikin Power Gauge, a proprietary quantitative stock rating model developed by Marc Chaikin, an investment strategist with 50 years of market experience.
