Once you get past the short and ultra-short DOW 30 ETFs, there is an uninterrupted group of short and ultra-short international ETFs running the gamut from emerging markets to Japan to China.

It was just a few months ago that pundits used the term "decoupling" to describe how foreign economies, especially in emerging market countries, would continue to grow despite a slow-down in the U.S.

It would appear that confidence in the concept of decoupling is on the wane. With investors bidding up the price of these inverse ETFs it seems that the expectations for emerging market and other international stocks are as dismal as the expectations for the U.S. stock market.

This has included inflation
