An exchange-traded fund (ETF) is a financial instrument traded on a stock exchange, much like stocks. An ETF holds assets such as stocks, futures, or bonds and trades at approximately the same price as the net asset value of its underlying assets over the course of the trading day.

Most ETFs track an index, or are otherwise structured to represent a specific asset class, and therefore are excellent trading vehicles for asset-switching strategies. The selection of ETFs to be used in a system is important. Typically, one is looking for a broad representation of different asset classes.

This group of 15 symbols seems to work well with some medium/long term, momentum based asset switching strategies. It can be used as-is, or as a good starting point for system development and back-testing. The ETFs are:


DBA       (PowerShares DB Agriculture Fund)
DBC       (PowerShares DB Commodity Index Tracking Fund)
EPP       (iShares MSCI Pacific Ex-Japan Index Fund)
EWJ       (iShares MSCI Japan Index Fund)
EWM       (iShares MSCI Malaysia Index Fund)
EWZ       (iShares MSCI Brazil Index Fund)
EZA       (iShares MSCI South Africa Index Fund)
FXI       (iShares FTSE/Xinhua China 25 Index Fund)
GLD       (SPDR Gold Trust)
IEV       (iShares S&P Europe 350 Index Fund)
ILF       (iShares Latin America 40 Index Fund)
IWM       (iShares Russell 2000)
SHV       (iShares Lehman Short Treasury Bond Fund)
SPY       (SPDR S&P 500)
TLT       (iShares Lehman 20 Year Treasury Bond Fund)

Trading financial instruments, including foreign exchange on margin, carries a high level of risk and is not suitable for all investors. The high degree of leverage can work against you as well as for you. Before deciding to invest in financial instruments or foreign exchange you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience, and risk appetite. The possibility exists that you could sustain a loss of some or all of your initial investment and therefore you should not invest money that you cannot afford to lose. You should be aware of all the risks associated with trading and seek advice from an independent financial advisor if you have any doubts.
