18 ETFs up over 100% This Year

by ETF Base on December 3, 2009

With US equities up over 60% from their lows in March 2009, there are several ETFs out there that have more than doubled those returns.  Of course, leveraged ETFs performed in stellar fashion during this period due to an unprecedented upward bias with very little downward volatility (see how leveraged ETFs can lose 90% even when the underlying index is flat over a given period), but there are even some sector/country conventional ETFs in there as well:
