A close look at Global X Interest Rate Hedge ETF

Gary Thomson, Chief Operating Officer FXOpen UK

Trading on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) through the NYSE’s Arca system, the Global X Interest Rate Hedge ETF is actively managed and strategically designed to hedge against the potential increase in long-term interest rates.


FXOpen has responded to the growing demand for diverse trading instruments by introducing 19 new exchange-traded funds (ETFs) on the TickTrader platform. These ETFs, available as CFDs, offer traders a variety of options. One noteworthy addition to this lineup is the Global X Interest Rate Hedge ETF, identified by the symbol RATE.

Recent weeks have seen some volatility in the Global X Interest Rate Hedge ETF, making its introduction on the TickTrader platform timely. Over the past 30 days, the price of the ETF experienced a 17.8% decline, particularly noticeable in the early part of December. The ETF is currently priced at $24.25 at FXOpen, the closing price at the end of the business day last Friday. However, since it is traded as a CFD (Contract for Difference), traders have the flexibility to profit from both upward and downward price movements.

The launch of this ETF coincides with a period of speculation about a potential economic downturn in the United States. The US Federal Reserve’s assertive stance on raising interest rates to counter inflation has triggered concerns about a potential slowdown in economic growth.

Despite previous speculations about a recession, the US economy has remained robust, supported by a resilient US dollar. The introduction of the Global X Interest Rate Hedge ETF comes at a time when traders are exploring various instruments for portfolio diversification, aligning with the evolving landscape of the capital markets.
