ETF Edge: July 2010
Welcome to the July issue of ETF Edge! The beginning of the summer is traditionally the time of year when Wall Street heads to the Jersey shore, allowing investors to catch their breath before earnings season kicks off. But the last month has been anything but quiet in the ETF industry, as the competitive landscape has continued to evolve and exciting new products have been stuffed into the pipeline.
