My favorite ETF reads over the past week, along with my ETF chart of the week!
Five Years Since “August 24” — What’s Changed? by Kimberly Russell
“During this volatility, the market plumbing has functioned flawlessly for all intents and purposes, thanks to ETF issuers, exchanges, market makers, and broker-dealers engaging and cooperating proactively over the past five years.”
“I was facing this constant war that I was losing to the passive strategies that were both outperforming and gathering assets.”
“Because of the very high interest in ETFs by retail investors, you might see swings that you haven’t in the past.”
“As long as the ETF industry continues to grow, and distribution remains a challenge, low-volume and low-asset ETFs will remain ripe acquisition targets.”
“ETFs provided an element of price discovery that was lacking in the underlying market.”
ETF Chart of the Week: Despite facing potential enforcement action by the SEC and CFTC, the United States Oil Fund (ticker USO), recently saw its largest one-day inflow since April.
