Markets.com blends are baskets of shares that are combined to reflect a shared theme that can potentially be linked to specific market trends or developments. When you invest in our blends, you get exposure to a number of shares in specific sectors as a single product.
The shares included in our blends have been chosen based on Market Capitalization (“Market Cap”), Trading Volume, Liquidity and Price Volatility. For each blend you will know the exact weight of the shares making up the basket.
Simply select the desired blend based on the shares included and your investment objectives.
How do we create our blends?
Markets.com blends are calculated by using the following information:
- Percentage of Market Cap of every share with respect to the total Market Cap of all shares available in the blend. This is used to determine the percentage weight of the share price in relation to the total basket.
- Daily and Annual Volatility over the last 2 years.
The Correlation Matrix of shares in each blend. This is used in tandem with other factors in determining appropriate leverage levels. Correlation values lie in the range (-1,1) where values close to 1 imply positive correlation and values close to -1 a negative correlation.
