Go Short Amid Coronavirus Volatility with these 5 ETFs

This article was originally published on ETFTrends.com.

Last Friday, the Dow Jones Industrial Average plummeted by 600 points amid investor fears of the coronavirus outbreak having a negative impact on global economies. It was the largest sell-off since August, which left most investors sick, except short sellers.

“There’s fear going into the weekend,” said Ilya Feygin, senior strategist at WallachBeth Capital. “The theme coming into this year was the Fed and Trump are going to bail us out of any problems, but the virus is something neither one can do anything about. That’s a reason to become more fearful.”
