Has anyone modified the "rules" for Inverse ETFs?

Thanks in advance,

Since they are for all intents and purposes mirror images of each other, the rules are the same. For me, the decision to buy or sell a specific leveraged ETF is based on the actions of its underlying index, not on the ETF itself.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but Inverse ETF's arent really meant to be held long term. They are designed to match the daily performance of an index, and thus are subject to volatility quirks when calculating long term results. Blog post below has some more info.

So keep this in mind with any inverse ETF strategy.

Also I'd say, if you want to play against an ETF, the more stable, ' predictable' result would be best obtained by shorting said ETF, instead of buying the inverse / leveraged version.

The one advantage of an Inverse ETF is for the case where one does not want to have a shorting account or in the case of Canadian RRSP accounts which do not permit shorting.
