Last Week In Review: ETF News And Blog Posts To 11/18/2012
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 11/18/2012.
More market pain became apparent this week, as the S&P 500 dropped some 1.5% over the past 5 trading days. It could have been a lot worse on Friday, but new hope was given to Wall Street as the Fiscal-cliff talks were considered to be ‘constructive.’ That was enough to pull the indexes out of another deep slump closing green for a change, a color which we have not seen all month when looking at closing prices of the averages.
Of course, that thin hope may disappear in no time when real hard decisions have to be made. I consider these opening meetings as nothing more than after election courtesy. Let’s see how this will play out once it becomes clear that the word ‘compromise’ has different interpretations across party lines.
Over past week, we covered the following:
