Is The Bull Market In Gold ETFs Back?

Will Weaker Earnings and Weaker Guidance Hurt Stock ETFs?

Will Weaker Earnings and Weaker Guidance Hurt Stock ETFs?

Less than 60% of all U.S. corporations have beaten analyst estimates for Q4 profits. Revenue numbers are equally questionable, as the “beat rate” is only 54%. Both readings are the weakest since the bull market in stocks began in March of 2009.

Why Precious Metal ETFs Are Reclaiming Their Shine

Why Precious Metal ETFs Are Reclaiming Their Shine

It wasn’t that long ago that gold bears were sticking a fork in the yellow metal. And they had several reasons. The $300+ per ounce price drop was not attracting tons of bargain-hunters.

U.S. stocks rallied 4% on the last day of November. Granted, China formerly announced that bank reserves would be lowered, a form of easing that hasn’t taken place in China in 3 years.

Rising Oil Prices May Boost The Appeal Of Canadian ETFs

Rising Oil Prices May Boost The Appeal Of Canadian ETFs

In spite of stock market woes in November, the spot price of crude has managed to push back towards the $100 per barrel mark. Not surprisingly, ETFs with exceptionally high correlations to oil such as Market Vectors Russia (RSX), have significantly outperformed the iShares MSCI All-World Fund (ACWI).
