November's Strongest ETFs

by: Scott's Investments
Below are the 20 hottest ETFs at the close of November, based on the 6 month performance. These are not 'buy' recommendations or aggregate portfolios for investment. An investor could use this list is
a) to get a sense for the intermediate trends and b) as potential short-term trading opportunities (long or short), although I tend not to use leveraged funds.
While in previous months the highest momentum ETFs were heavy on leveraged ETFs, as detailed here, this month we see a high concentration of commodity ETFs (similar to last month). This matches up well with the recent inflation in a variety of commodities.
If you are comfortable using your own technical analysis that is another option for using the list. Trend lines and support/resistance levels are some of the simplest and most powerful tools for analyzing price charts. An investor could also use proprietary trading signals combined with risk management techniques such as those I profiled in-depth here. Data includes leveraged ETFs and the data source is
