Market Vectors Mortgage REIT Income ETF Message Board

    Tracking the index

    I own a little MORL, not MORT, but they both track the same index - MarketVectors Global mREITs. MORT should track this index 1 for 1, while MORL aims for 2 for 1. Neither MORT (which is an ETF) nor MORL (which is an ETN) seems to track the index particularly well.

    Today, for example, the index was up 0.16%. MORT was up 0.34%, and MORL was down 1.15%.
    I've only owned MORL a short time, and I can't find historical data on the index - I can only check it each day.

    So my question - has anyone actually followed MORT to see how closely it tracks the index? Thanks.

    • I'm with you jrad52, I too have been buying into MORL. MORL won't track exactly because of supply and demand of number of shares people are trading. In six months MORL will be much higher imo, because it will be paying a large monthly dividend with slightly less risk because it's a little diversified. Then it will attract attention, but holders won't want to give up their valueable shares. Also, MORL and MORT are managed by a respected major (UBS). Hold and buy more!
