For those who would like to invest based on longer term demographics and its relationship to the economy, I just found out today that Harry Dent started an ETF back in September.
Here's the statement of the funds objective from his site: HS Dent will use a combination of economic insight and relative strength to determine the portfolio composition of the ETF. HS Dent believes this strategy is appropriate for the current economic situation because it allows the ETF to follow trends as they emerge in what is expected to be a very volatile market over the next several years. In addition, the ETF can become “defensive”, rotating to hold very short duration (less than one year) fixed income, if the financial markets begin to deteriorate and the relative strength of potential investments weakens. The symbol is DENT and closed today at $20.44.
