Last Week In Review: ETF News And Blog Posts To 5/13/2012
In case you missed it, here’s a summary of the ETF topics and market reviews I posted to my blog during the week ending on 5/13/2012.
Much uncertainty about the worsening European debt crisis pulled the benchmark S&P 500 index lower by some 1.2% for the week. Overall, upward momentum has slowed, especially in the international area as shown by my International Trend Tracking Index (TTI), which is now hovering on the plus and minus side of its long term trend line by a very small percentage.
Towards the end of the week, news of JPM’s trading losses, so far estimated to be in the $2 billion range, caused nervousness on Wall Street. The big question in my mind is whether that was an isolated incident or if there is more to come. I my guess is the latter but it may take some time for the other cockroaches to emerge.

The Next Crisis: Will Spain Sink The European Union?
