    David,
    Thank you for the comprehensive ETF Guide. One thing i'm currently exploring is how one might set a target for an inverse ETF such as SEF. Do you have any insights to offer through your experience with ETFs? Regards -

    Author’s reply » I started using inverse ETFs last year, including the leveraged inverse ETFs. You have to be carefully with them -- they are massively volatile. I tend to set short term targets for them, based on my market outlook. But given how hard market timing is, it's a risky activity.
