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.
As it is global stocks are feeling the pinch of escalating trade tensions between the United States and China, and now the collapse in Turkish lira has amplified the concerns.

The volatility index, also known as the "fear index," is intended to measure the implied forward 30-day volatility of the market by using at-the-money put and call option prices for certain stocks. The volatility index is not designed to measure fear in the market — it's designed to "measure the amount of option premiums people are willing to pay," Jeff Kilburg of KKM Financial said during a CNBC interview Thursday. It's not designed to quantify the level of concern investors have with external potential disruptive events, like trade wars and tariffs, Kilburg said.
A lot will be made of the VIX (VXY)(VXX) piercing below 11 today. I have know some investors who love it when volatility falls like this. To them, it signals calm in the market (SPY)(DIA). To other investors, it signals complacency. They believe that market participants aren’t paying attention to risks, and that the market is due for a fall.
The Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE) is known for its Volatility Index, also called VIX. VIX is generated from the implied volatilities on index options for the S&P 500, and it shows the market's expectation of 30-day volatility. Known also as the "fear index," among other similar names, VIX is commonly used as a measure of investor confidence in the market, or, conversely, as a way of gauging how fearful market participants are that volatility will plague the space.
U.S. equities continue to trade nervously at the start of U.S. trade tariffs on $34 billion of Chinese imports — an act that will then be met with countervailing tariffs on U.S. imports by the Chinese. While far more in potential tariffs have been announced by both sides as threats, neither side is showing any evidence of being interested in backing down from what looks like a worsening cycle of escalation.
Gold rose on Friday, June 29, breaking its five-day losing streak. With a rebound in gold, its RSI (relative strength index) also revived from above 30 to 27 on Friday. Gold fell 3.5%, while silver, platinum, and palladium tumbled 1.9%, 6%, and 2.7%, respectively.
The Cboe Volatility Index, or so-called VIX, along with related VIX ETFs jumped Monday as the fear gauge reflected traders' increasing anxiety over the potential fallout of an escalating trade war between the U.S. and China. On Monday, the iPath S&P 500 VIX Short Term Futures ETN (VXX) increased 15.6%, ProShares VIX Short-Term Futures ETF (VIXY) jumped 14.9% and the leveraged ProShares Ultra VIX Short-Term Futures (UVXY) , which provides the 2x or 200% daily performance of the S&P 500 VIX Short-Term Futures Index, advanced 22.1%. Meanwhile, the CBOE Volatility Index surged 28.5% to 17.7.
As the trade war rhetoric intensifies, some investors are concerned that the tensions could push the U.S. economy into a recession. "Our calculations suggest that a major trade war would lead to a significant reduction in growth," Michelle Meyer, U.S. economist at Bank of America Merrill Lynch, said in a note, according to CNBC. Concerns over a full blown trade war comes as President Donald Trump threatens more stringent tariffs aimed at both China and the European Union.

After a wild ride, investors are hoping for the markets to return to normal, but a number of risks still remain and may potentially cause another round of risk-off selling. However, there are a number ...
A host of Trump’s anti-trade policies has been playing foul in the stock market, leading to increased market uncertainty and trade tensions between the United States and countries around the world. After both the United States and China reached an agreement and vowed not to launch a trade war against each other, Trump’s announcement to impose a hefty 25% tariff on $50 billion worth of Chinese goods escalated tensions between the two. Trump also plans to restrict Chinese investment in U.S. companies and limit the number of goods that these can sell to China.
US markets (VOO) were surprisingly resilient for the week ending June 1 despite increased political uncertainty, Italy’s political drama, and renewed anxiety about trade tensions. US equity markets had a positive close in May. Tech and small caps leading the charge and this week’s price action will likely depend on how markets react to renewed trade tensions. Last week, the Trump Administration slapped tariffs on Europe, Canada, and China.
Global markets mostly fell last week (ended May 25) as political uncertainty kept investors at bay. Donald Trump calling off the North Korea summit and later saying that the summit could still happen, political disturbances in Spain and Italy, and volatile crude oil prices all dragged down equity indexes. US indexes (VOO), however, showed a reduction in concerns about higher rates after the Fed indicated at its May meeting that it is alright with inflation overshooting its 2% target in the short term.
