    Looking at the emerging market equal weight etf, $EWEM. Comparing to $EEM, $VWO and $DGS.

    • David Jackson: EWEM has 13% of its assets in two other ETFs, $EPI and $EWZ. Aagh. Fees on fees... Data here: http://bit.ly/JWA1DT

    • Ocean Man: I like to short the ones with fees on fees, or fees plus leverage decay. Even better if I can short one and its inverse for equal amounts.

    • David Jackson: I've found it's hard to borrow the ETFs I want to short, even IWM. Anyone having similar problems?

    • Ocean Man: David - yes, hard to find shares. And then sometimes the shares you do short leave, and you start getting charged for them.
