ETF Rewind - Week 53 (12/31/09)

(Click Image to Enlarge/ Glossary)

Our second holiday shortened week left the S&P 500 (SPY) lower by -0.5%, although Emerging Markets (EEM) managed to finish higher by +1.8%. Just as last week the vast majority of tracked equity ETFs had reached extreme short-term overbought readings, the late Thursday sell-off left equities at the opposite extreme. Normally I would look for follow through on that move, but with volume as light as it was and coming into the beginning of the month, we'll just have to see.

Meanwhile, the first trading week of 2010 features the following busy economic calendar, including the big monthly jobs report, and rotation model selections (a new feature for 2010!):
A Happy Holidays & Wonderful New Year (and Decade) to all of my Market Rewind Readers!


If you are interested in a significantly more thorough version of this weekly summary, consider taking a look at Market Rewind's nightly ETF Rewind Pro service. In addition to coverage of nearly 200 ETFs across twelve major asset classes, you will find three model portfolios, daily market signals and commentary, pairs trading and various powerful portfolio management tools.

Jeff,
Your new picture reveals much about the elusive El Jeffe' persona. This is a cross between Hemingway and the Pink Panther's Inspector Clouseau. I like it.
