Here is a look at ETFs that currently offer attractive short selling opportunities. The ETFs included in this list are rated as sell candidates for two reasons. First, each of these funds is deemed to be in a downtrend based on the fact that its 50-day moving average is below its 200-day moving average, which are popular indicators for gauging long-term and medium-term trends, respectively. Second, each of these ETFs is also trading above its 20-day moving average, thereby offering a near-term “sell on the pop” opportunity given the longer-term downtrend at hand. Note that this prospect list also features a liquidity screen by excluding ETFs with average trading volumes below the one million shares mark. As always, investors of all experience levels are advised to use stop-loss orders and practice disciplined profit-taking techniques.

Japan may not be the first market that comes to mind when investors look for ex-US developed market opportunities, but the Land of the Rising Sun could surprise some investors, making ETFs, such as the iShares MSCI Japan ETF (EWJ) , potentially rewarding plays.

Japanese companies are turning a profit and the economy is strengthening, but Japan's markets and country-specific ETF remain undervalued and largely overlooked. The iShares MSCI Japan ETF (EWJ) , one of the largest Japan ETFs listed in the U.S., increased 11.1% year-to-date and trades at a 13.1 price-to-earnings and 1.1 price-to-book. James Mackintosh for the Wall Street Journal argued that global investors have passed over Japan's markets largely because of perceived risks associated with a global slowdown.
The iShares MSCI Japan ETF (EWJ) , one of the largest Japan ETFs listed in the U.S., is up just 6.37% this year.

EWJ seeks to track the investment results of the MSCI Japan Index, which consists of stocks traded primarily on the Tokyo Stock Exchange.
