First Trust Dorsey Wright Focus 5 ETF (FV)
Investment Objective/Strategy - This exchange-traded fund seeks investment results that correspond generally to the price and yield (before the fund's fees and expenses) of an equity index called the Dorsey Wright Focus Five™ Index.
There can be no assurance that the Fund's investment objectives will be achieved.
Index Description According to the Index Provider
  • The Index is designed to provide targeted exposure to five First Trust sector and industry based ETFs that Dorsey, Wright & Associates (DWA) believes offer the greatest potential to outperform the other ETFs in the selection universe and that satisfy trading volume and liquidity requirements.
  • To construct the Index, DWA begins with the universe of First Trust sector and industry ETFs.
  • Using the DWA proprietary relative strength methodology, the ETFs are compared to each other to determine inclusion by measuring each ETF's price momentum relative to other ETFs in the universe.
  • Each ETF is given a score that allows DWA to objectively determine where it ranks relative to all other ETFs in the universe.
  • The relative strength analysis is conducted twice monthly. ETFs are replaced when they fall sufficiently out of favor, based on their relative strength, versus the other ETFs within the universe. The Index is rebalanced so each position is equally weighted.
