ETF Edge: June 2010

Published on by on June 1, 2010

A lot has changed in the ETF industry since the May edition; a number of new products and issuers have hit the market, while the fallout from the “flash crash” sparked a closer look at how ETFs are being used and potential limitations in the current system. Despite some initial concerns–the majority of trades canceled as a result of the May 6 fiasco were in ETFs–the cash has continued to flow.

From an investing perspective, global equity markets have tumbled for most of the last month as lingering concerns over a European debt crisis and an overheating China have weighed on stocks.
