Update

I previously wrote an article laying the groundwork for an exciting immunotherapy ETF launching in the second half of 2015, “A Niche ETF In The Potentially Promising Future Of Immunotherapy Is On The Horizon.” Loncar Investments has teamed up with an ETF firm and finally launched its immunotherapy ETF, Loncar Cancer Immunotherapy ETF (ticker symbol: CNRC). I wanted to update readers on the latest information and launch of the ETF as many readers requested.

Introduction

Immunotherapy has emerged as an exciting therapeutic area that has experienced massive growth over the past few years in terms of research and development expenditures and a sheer number of clinical trials throughout the biotechnology sector. Immunotherapy ushers in a new class of potentially promising therapies by leveraging the immune system to recognize and eradicate debilitating diseases, specifically cancer and chronic viral infections.

Take calculated risks. That is quite different from being rash.
– George S. Patton -

Last week silver was the focus of incredible price swings which left many licking their wounds and shaking their heads at the trading losses they had incurred. This sell off was likely triggered by the increase in margin requirements for futures contracts, but the stunning price decline extended to all vehicles like exchange traded funds use to trade the glimmering metal.

I recognized the potential opportunity early in the week, and began to look at various position structures using options on Tuesday morning.

You only have to watch my earlier videos to see that it has performed very well this week in gold as well as the crude. In today’s short video I want to share an ETF that is setting up nicely and should be giving us a buy signal using the same strategy that we used in the earlier gold and crude oil videos.

This ETF which closely follows the Swiss Franc (symbol FXF) is one you may want to take a look at. As you may be aware, the Swiss Franc is independent of the euro zone and is a separate currency that is backed by the Swiss government.
