Amid renewed concerns about Greece’s fate as a member of the Eurozone and China’s plan to expand short-selling, U.S. stocks careened Friday with the S&P 500, Dow Jones Industrial Average and the Nasdaq Composite all down more than 1% just minutes before the close.
Exchange traded funds that have recently been leaders and confirmers of increased risk appetite were among Friday’s most repudiated. Of the 25 worst-performing non-leveraged ETFs on Friday, 24 were emerging markets funds and of that group of 24, roughly two-thirds were China-specific funds.
With that we head to some of this week’s biggest ETF stories.
