Market Vectors Steel ETF (SLX)


The Steel ETF seeks to replicate as closely as possible, before fees and expenses, the price and yield performance of the NYSE Arca Steel Index. The Index provides exposure to publicly traded companies primarily involved in a variety of activities that are related to steel production, including the operation of manufacturing mills, fabrication of steel products, or the extraction and reduction of iron ore. As such, the Fund is subject to the risks of investing in this sector. [1]
