However, this definitely does not mean low returns for the ETF. The ETF has come out as one of the best performing products in the financial ETF world in 2013 gaining an impressive 46%, and it will likely continue with its exciting rally in 2014. Notably, over the last one-year period, the return (33%) from KIE outperformed the return offered by the broader financial ETF Financial Select Sector SPDR (AMEX:XLF). Thus, investors seeking equity appreciation with a moderate level of risk might bet on KIE. The fund is currently hovering near its 52-week high level. The product has a Zacks ETF Rank of 2 or Buy rating with a Medium risk outlook.

ETF Watch: EGShares Debuts Bond ETFs

Copper Catch Up Apple Inc. (AAPL): Key Levels To Watch SPDR Gold Trust ETF (GLD): Trade Planning and Levels To Watch SPDR Gold Trust ETF (GLD): Gold Prices Are At Key Levels Corey Rosenbloom: Copper has entered a key trading decision point namely confluence resistance and I wanted to highlight this area along with the objective trade planning levels at this inflection level. Lets start with a broader perspective of the current level and trend structure (NYSEARCA:JJC) as an ETF proxy: For the JJC commodity ETF, we can see a persistent (primary) Downtrend in motion since the 2011 top (which was actually ahead of oil, gold, silver, and the peak of other commodity markets). The main idea for short-term traders is that price is compressed between the falling 50 week EMA and (slightly) rising 20 week EMA at the $41.13 and $40.31 price levels respectively. Well focus our attention on the $41.00 level which forms a confluence with the falling 50 week EMA, upper Bollinger Band, and shorter-term Fibonacci Retracement Levels.

Focusing On This Copper ETF (JJC)

As I search for investment ideas from a bottom-up perspective I started noticing a pattern of attractively valued gold miners. GLD Total Return Price data by YCharts The Gold Miners ETF grants access to a package of gold miners like: Goldcorp ( GG ), Barrick Gold Corporation ( ABX ), Newmont Mining Corporation ( NEM ), Randgold Resources ( GOLD ) and trending ETFs Yamana Gold ( AUY ). I understand the attractiveness of Gold as a hedge. Yet, I don’t like setting up hedges that have a negative expected value profile. Even if they improve the volatility of my portfolio, to me that’s not worth including assets that will underperform on average. With miners at current valuations – compared to gold price – I’m much more inclined to believe there is positive expected value in the industry.

Market Vectors Gold Miners ETF: Is Now The Time To Dig In?

ETFs are similar to mutual funds that track indexes of equities, bonds or commodities. Yet they can be bought and sold during the trading day and their prices may rise or fall more than the value of the assets they hold. Exodus Abates Demand has revived as munis are rallying this month and as a months-long cash exodus from muni mutual funds is slowing. Benchmark 10-year munis yield 2.73 percent , down from as high as 3.05 percent last month, Bloomberg data show. The rate reached 1.52 percent in December 2012, the lowest since at least January 2009. People have been trained to think of interest rates just being too low, said Mosley at Trident.
