ETF Spotlight: Australia

December 05, 2011

Two ETFs were highlighted by Seeking Alpha contributor Tom Lydon:

  • iShares MSCI Australia Index Fund (NYSEArca: EWA): EWA rose close to 11 percent over the past week, likely affected by an increase in Australia’s mining industry.
  • CurrencyShares Australian Dollar Trust (NYSEArca: FXA): FXA rallied over 5 percent as the commodity-driven Australian dollar strengthened.
