Is there any advantage of shorting Inverse Exchange Traded Funds if you are betting on an up market or does it just make sense on going long on the Bull cousin that most of these exchange traded funds have.
I am thinking like tax implications.
It does sound kind of strange to short a fund that short stocks
instead of just going for a fund that positively tracks the market but
when I was thinking about that I was wondering if indeed that's a
strategy one can use if they think the index will go up.
