ETF Insider: Cautiously Bullish At Home

May 08, 2012


With earnings season pretty much over, focus turns to economic data and again to the eurozone, which could likely affect a number of popular exchange-traded products, according to an article on ETF Database.

The funds highlighted in the article include:

  • Vanguard Small Cap ETF (NYSEArca: VB) – Should move with the release of the latest NFIB small business index data in the U.S. and may be volatile if the report falls short of projected readings.
  • iShares MSCI Australia Index Fund (NYSEArca: EWA) – Given recent rate cuts by the Reserve Bank of Australia, EWA may be in trouble if the unemployment rate there has crept higher.
  • VelocityShares Daily Inverse VIX Short-Term ETN (NYSEArca: XIV) – The note might jump if the number of those who filed for unemployment benefits in the U.S. rose in the past week.
  • SPDR S&P China ETF (NYSEArca: GXC) – Keep an eye on this China-focused ETF, as inflation and lending data are scheduled to be released on Thursday.
  • CurrencyShares Euro Currency Trust (NYSEArca: FXE) – Already moving down after elections in Greece and France, FXE looks vulnerable to accelerating selling pressure.
