Investors now have the opportunity to short the US major stock market indices through Inverse Market Index ETFs. These major market indices include the S&P 500, Nasdaq 100, and the Russell 2000. Investors are able to profit when these major indices decline in price and vice versa when these markets increase. This type of investment is for investors who expect a market decline or correction and are hedging their current portfolio.

Leveraged Market Index Inverse ETFs are also available for investors wanting more risk. Investors can purchase both 2x (200%) and 3x (300%) the market index performance. Owning a leveraged ETF can lead to much higher gains, since an investor is using less capital in return for a possible higher rate of return on investment. There is also a possibility of greater losses due to the leverage factor.
