Stagflation ETF in the works

Persistent high inflation combined with high unemployment and stagnant demand in a country’s economy is Stagflation and there is an ETF in the works to match a trend that is happening in the economy. The Merk Stagflation ETF will be passively managed and track an index of stagflation-sensitive asset classes. If approved by regulators, the fund would hold 55%-85% U.S. Treasury Inflation-Protected Securities and between 5%-15% real estate, gold and oil.
