Be Prepared to Move Fast on EEV

ProShares UltraShort MSCI Emerging Markets Fund ( EEV ) -- This double inverse exchange-traded fund ( ETF ) seeks daily investment results that correspond to twice the inverse of the daily performance of the MSCI Emerging Markets Index.

This fund, which normally invests at least 80% of assets in financial instruments with economic characteristics that are inverse to those of the index, should be used only by traders as a bear market investment since its objective is to short stocks in emerging markets.

On April 16, EEV gave its first meaningful buy signal when it gapped on high volume from $47 and ran to over $50. A pullback to $46.70 set the next low of the bull channel.

EEV could reverse swiftly back to the 20-day moving average, now at $47.70, and that would be our buy point for a quick trade to $53. 

Leveraged ETFs carry greater risk than ordinary ETFs, so investors should use stop-loss orders. And the SEC has determined that "ultra" funds are most appropriate for short-term trades and are not good long-term investments.
