Better to short an ETF or go long on the short version of the same ETF?

Question

Hi.

 

I want to short the STOXX Europe 600 banks ETF.  IG has the iShares ETF and the db-x trackers short of the same ETF.  Is it better to go short on the STOXX or long on the db-x trackers?

 

Thanks for your help.

Hi , thanks for the post.

 

As the iShares ETF and the db-x trackers short are not offered from the same provider, they will not represent the perfect inverse of each other, therefore you cannot infer that relationship.  As we are execution-only, we would not be able to advise on which is preferable, and this would depend on exactly what exposure you are looking for.

 

Sorry I couldn't help more here - let us know any more queries you have!

Thanks,

Hannah
