High Volume ETFs On The Cutline – Updated Through 8/31/2011

Since the last ETF Cutline report a week ago, the S&P 500 has rebound by +3.48%, but the change in momentum has not been enough to generate any new ETF prospects suitable as current investment material. Only 16 ETFs hover above the line in bullish territory, while 72 remain below it and on the bearish side of the equation.

To repeat, the High Volume ETF Cutline report includes all ETFs above and below the cutline (trend line). To clarify, High Volume (HV) ETFs are defined as those with an average daily volume of $10 million or higher.

These ETFs are generated from my selected list of some 90 that I use in my advisor practice. It cuts out the “noise,” which simply means it eliminates those ETFs that I would never buy because of their volume limitations.

Take a look at the most recent table:


We still have the same ETFs, which have been the leaders for some time, occupying the top spots. That includes GLD, TLT, FXF, all of which we currently have positions in.

I still believe it’s too early to make any new commitments, as it is uncertain whether the bulls will continue their run of the past week, of if the time has come for the bears to again engage in some chest pounding.
