If you've been missing the shipping exchange traded fund ( ETF ) since it closed recently, fret no more: the Claymore Delta/Global Shipping ETF (NYSEArca: SEA ) has once again taken to the seas.

The fund will try to reflect the performance, before fees and expenses, of the same index the original fund did: the Delta Global Shipping Index, or the "Shipping Index." SEA has an expense ratio of 0.65%. [ Claymore Closes Shipping ETF; What's the Next Step? ]

The index includes 30 companies within the maritime industry.

Companies come from developed markets, which include Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, Singapore, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, the United States or the United Kingdom.

No single security weight will exceed 4% of the index at the time of rebalancing. Rebalancing will occur quarterly. [ Shipping ETF Sailing an Open Course. ]

The shipping sector will be a major indicator of how the economic recovery is proceeding as countries around the world ship raw materials and finished goods back and forth. Dry bulk freight rates have been rising in recent months, along with capesize vessel rates, reports My Iris . China is a major consumer of raw materials these days, and many of the ships are heading in their direction.
