A New Smartphone ETF Launches

Filed under: Launches , ETF There’s an apt story in business: There’s always room for one more. Take McDonalds ( MCD ) and Burger King ( BKC ) for example.

But like Burger King, we have a brand new ETF that tracks smartphones and other major holdings: the First Trust NASDAQ CEA Smartphone Index Fund ( FONE ).

Single Trader Dominates Copper in London Metals Exchange

Filed under: Market Matters , Commodities , ETF Over the years there have been some strange goings on in the commodity markets. One episode that comes to mind is the attempt by the Hunt brothers of Texas to corner the silver market in the 1970s. Now we have another strange occurrence. The Financial Times reported that one trader holds 80% to 90% of the copper in the London Metals Exchange (LME) warehouses, valued at about $3 billion. We do know that JPMorgan Chase ( JPM ) is a big player in the copper market. Whether JPMorgan increased its holdings is not known.

The Fed’s Actions Are Boosting the Bull Cycle for U.S. Stocks

Filed in earnings, economy, silver, ubs by on October 4, 2010 0 Comments

News from the U.S. Federal Reserve is keeping the bull cycle for U.S. stocks alive and well. Despite investors taking a breather this week, the outlook is good for coming months. The Standard & Poor’s 500 Index fell 0.2% since Monday, while the Nasdaq 100 , shown below, fell every day of the past week for a total slippage of 1.5%. The week felt a lot better than that for my subscribers because all but one of our exchange-traded funds (ETF) bets is on overseas stocks, and most rose 1.75% to 4.7%. So we are exiting the best September since 1939, but it closed very softly for U.S. investors as the most critical earnings season in the past year looms on the horizon.
