I do the “ETF of the Week” for MarketWatch every Thursday on Chuck Jaffe’s MoneyLife Show where I highlight big movers and disappointments within the exchange traded fund market.

On Thursday, I looked at the Guggenheim BulletShares 2018 High Yield Corporate Bond ETF (BSJI). Defined-maturity ETFs are ideal for creating a “laddered” bond portfolio as the funds help customize holdings by providing layered duration exposure.
