ETF Winners & Losers (October 4, 2007)

Print Email

Today was a very mixed bag with the ETF’s that track various sectors and markets.  We saw commodity and foreign market ETF’s leading the pack.  As always, we have removed the obvious leveraged ETF’s from the mix and we also removed the "inverse index" ETF’s so traders can see the true groups that were winners and losers.  If one sector is dominating the winners or losers, we also try to remove the less performing duplicates to show how more sectors performed.

Here are today’s winners and losers in ETF’s (with % change):
