Monday was a dismal day for U.S. stocks as the government shutdown stretched on with investors fearing the shutdown could carry into the Oct. 17 debt ceiling deadline. A risk-off day was good for volatility ETNs and select commodity ETFs. On the downside, Japan equity, biotech and Asia-Pacific ETFs were among the Monday offenders. Some ETFs also saw noticeable volume increases, including some natural gas and silver plays along with a pair of emerging markets bond funds.
