3 ETFs To Watch As Crisis Clears Hurdles

September 12, 2012

Now that the European Central Bank is ready to take action to stimulate eurozone economies, there are a handful of ETFs that are poised to make substantial leaps—especially if ECB President Mario Draghi’s proposed actions coincide with QE3 from the Federal Reserve, according to an article posted on MarketWatch.

Due to their unique structure and exposures, these three funds are most likely to be affected by the changes brought on by Draghi and the ECB:

  • iShares Silver Trust ETF (NYSEArca: SLV)
  • CurrencyShares Euro Trust ETF (NYSEArca: FXE)
  • iShares MSCI Germany Index Fund ETF (NYSEArca: EWG)
