With this year's market bloodbath, bearish speculators have flocked to short or inverse ETFs to feast on the mishaps of flagship indices, mainly the tech-heavy ones.

In Europe, Lyxor CAC 40 Daily (-2x) Inverse UCITS ETF (SHC, +$20 million), Xtrackers S&P 500 Inverse Daily Swap UCITS ETF (XSPS, +$15 million), Xtrackers ShortDAX x2 Daily Swap UCITS ETF (XSD2, +$12 million), Lyxor FTSE MIB Daily (-2x) Inverse (Xbear) UCITS ETF (BERMIB, +$6 million), and WisdomTree NASDAQ 100 3x Daily Short (QQQS, +$5 million) drew some notable inflows.

Meanwhile, in Asia-Pacific, CSOP Leveraged and Inverse Series-CSOP Hang Seng Index Daily (-2x) Inverse Product (7500) and CSOP Hang Seng TECH Index Daily (-2x) Inverse Product ETF (7552) lured in +$112 and +$26 million respectively.
