  • The YINN ETF provides 3x daily exposure to Chinese equities through the use of derivatives.
  • The bear case against Chinese equities is well known and consensus. Any improvement in the negative drivers can cause a large squeeze.
  • However, I think a rebound is best played with unlevered assets as the path could be volatile.

I recently wrote a contrarian bullish article on the Templeton Dragon Fund (TDF) that highlighted the squeeze potential in Chinese equities.

While I am contrarian bullish on Chinese equities, I am hesitant to buy the Direxion Daily FTSE China
