Transportation ETF

This Transportation ETF is full of delivery and logistics companies. Transportation by planes, trains, ships, trucks, they all are included in this ETF. This transportation ETF is very depended upon market conditions as transportation is depended upon transactions (sales). 

Oil prices also play a major role here as transportation and fuel are intertwined. This transportation ETF is particularly interesting to enter just after a slowdown in the economy. With market conditions improving this transportation ETF will rise simultaneously. Beware of slumps in the economy as this transportation ETF will go down too and most often for years to come.
