ETF Edge: November 2013
Welcome to the November edition of ETF Edge! Major equity benchmarks rallied to fresh all-time high this past month as the government shutdown ended and earnings season painted a brighter outlook. Politicians on Capitol Hill drafted a “band-aid” deal ahead of the debt-ceiling deadline on October 16th, effectively kicking the can down the road to mid-January of 2014 when the issue will be re-opened in Congress. With the holiday shopping season upon us, investors biggest concerns through the end of the year will be watching for any hints from the Federal Reserve regarding the postponed taper.
