LFEQ
VanEck Vectors Long/Flat Trend ETF

Fund Description

VanEck Vectors®Long/Flat Trend ETF (LFEQ®) seeks to replicate as closely as possible, before fees and expenses, the price and yield performance of the Ned Davis Research CMG US Large Cap Long/Flat Index (NDRCMGLF). The NDRCMGLF Index follows a proprietary model that determines when, and by how much, it allocates to U.S. equities and/or U.S. Treasury bills to seek to help avoid losses in declining markets or capitalize from rising markets. The model produces daily trade signals to determine the Index's equity allocation percentage (100%, 50%, or 0%).
