Last Week In Review: ETF News And Blog Posts To 10/14/2012
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 10/14/2012.
The markets did an about face as weakness set in across the board with the S&P 500 giving back some 2.2% over the past week.
It was about time, as index levels had gotten ahead of themselves given underlying economic realities. It seems that even the latest stimulus attempt by the Fed has lost its luster as the S&P 500 has now retreated to pre-QE-3 levels. In other words, the QE market hysteria has come to an end, at least for the time being.
We are now sitting on top of ECB’s Mario Draghi’s OMT stimulus rally from last month, and there is a good chance that this hyped market advance may be taken out as well.
Over past week, we covered the following:
