Trying to find an online article about an investment firm that had put together a fund set to have positive returns in a down market

I was just reading on June 11th an online article about an investment firm that had put together a fund set to have positive returns in a down market. The fund will be starting up later this summer. Now I can't find the article nor remember the company that had put it together after a 4 year wait for SEC approval. Any help would be appreciated.

Sounds like the ProShares Trust ETFs. A story on it here. Doubtless other news sources have similar stories, that was just the first that popped up.

The killer fund is one that does well in a flat market.

You might be interested in market neutral investing--a strategy that endeavors to achieve a steady positive return no matter what the market does. Here is some summary info.

Wow, the real story seems to be use of leverage. Looks like the hedgies are making their way over to ordinary-investor land.

There are already bear funds that do this.
