Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway has acquired stakes in Japan's largest trading companies or "sogo shoshas."
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. The Japan market discount especially stands out because Japanese investors earn virtually nothing on bonds where yields were even trading in the negative territory, whereas U.S. investors can generate nearly 2% on a 10-year Treasury note. One of the primary selling points of the Japanese market is low valuations; some of the lowest in the developed world.
