Compared to last week, things were somewhat subdued on Wall Street this week with earnings and economic data taking center stage. Geopolitical handwringing did not fall off investors’ radars, but it did wane a bit.
That is not to say global and international exchange traded funds were not in focus this week. Prior to Friday’s tumble in U.S. stocks, it was shaping up to be an impressive week for emerging markets stocks and ETFs. Some were still able to notch solid showings on the week, helping lift several related articles to among the most significant ETF fare.
With that, here is a look at some of this week’s biggest ETF stories.
