ETF Edge January 2015

Published on by on January 5, 2015 | Updated February 2, 2015

Welcome to the January edition of ETF Edge! After the quiet ascent seen during November, volatility returned to the markets once again in the final trading month of the year. Profit taking pressures resurfaced as falling oil prices re-ignited fears over global growth prospects; adding to the list of uncertainties was a return of rate-hike fears in time for the Fed’s final meeting of 2014. Nonetheless, major equity indexes managed to recover much of the lost ground in the second half of the month, marking another year in green territory for domestic benchmarks. 

Inside ETF Edge, we examine the most important drivers of domestic and foreign markets, identifying catalysts and signposts contributing to the trends at hand. We also recap valuation metrics across the equity universe and break down the best and worst performers to date this year; our databank of over 1,600 exchange-traded products provides a flexible resource for investors and advisors to analyze the performance and products available in every ETFdb Category. Here’s a look at what’s inside this month’s ETF Edge:
