I have been disappointed by the performance of my emerging markets ETF (XEM.TO) and am concerned that the performance of emerging markets will not be strong (e.g., China). I also want to have some exposure to the US Technology sector, which seems strong. There is not Technology ETF in Canada, but the Nasdaq is very heaving weighted to tech and can be bought using a Canadian ETF (ZQQ.TO).
- Sell XEM @ $26.58
- Buy ZQQ @ $35.88
A month after this trade it seems to have been a good call. The ETF is sold is down 4% and the one purchased is up 1%. That’s a 5% gain.
Two months after this trade it is still a good call, but marginal. XEM is down 1.5% and ZQQ is down 1.0%.
