Overview of the Most-Shorted ETFs

Nathan Reiff

According to ETF.com, some of the most-shorted exchange-traded funds (ETFs) focus on spaces as diverse as junk bonds, retailers, natural gas and semiconductors, among other areas. Traders engage in "shorting" when they borrow a security, sell it and then buy it back at a later date and hopefully at a lower price.
