The so called “short ETFs” mimic the performance of the financial instrument, allowing investors to profit from diminishing prices, in other words this ETF is inversely related to the underlying instrument.
This type of ETF offers a certain amount of leverage over the performance of the financial instrument, usually 2:1 or 3:1. When the leverage is 1:2, a movement in the price of the instrument of 1% leads to a 2% movement in the price of the ETF.
