Below we highlight the best and worst performing leveraged and short ETFs year to date. As shown, the 3x inverse Financial sector ETF (NYSEARCA:FAZ) is up the most at 60%, followed by the two 2x inverse Financial sector ETFs, RFN and SKF. The inverse MSCI EAFE (Europe, Asia, Far East) ETF ranks 4th with a gain of 25%. The 2x inverse oil ETF is the only commodity-related name on the list of winners, while the 2x inverse Euro (NYSEARCA:DRR) is the only currency-related name. The list of losers pretty much consists of the inverse of the winners, with the 3x long Financial sector ETF (NYSEARCA:FAS) leading the declines.
