The second half of 2015 is off to a less-than-awe-inspiring for U.S. stocks as confirmed by Friday’s plunge by U.S. stocks. The S&P fell 1% Friday while the Dow Jones Industrial Average turned in its worst weekly performance since January.

The S&P 500 lost 2.1% for the week, its fourth weekly decline in the past five. On Friday, eight of 10 sectors tracked by the S&P 500 declined. There were some bright spots from the world of exchange traded funds this week (and some dark ones, too), so without further ado, let’s get into this week’s biggest ETF stories.
