ETF Edge: September 2013
Welcome to the September edition of ETF Edge! Bearish pressures permeated Wall Street this past month as looming fears over the upcoming Fed taper kept investors on edge and new buyers on the sidelines. Signs of improving growth prospects in the Euro zone brought out the bulls overseas, however, the slowdown in China continues to take its toll on foreign stock markets around the globe. In recent days the conflict in Syria has intensified and U.S. involvement is practically unavoidable at this point, which has further added to the clouds of uncertainty looming over Wall Street.
