ETFs today

There is a new section in the Smart Money website I have been enjoying having a look at.
There is now an ETF map of the market, tucked inside their website, that supplements their stock and mutual fund maps of the market:

and a monthly performance .pdf file here:http://www.etftrends.com/files/06-30-08ETFReport.pdf

Since I am a perennial bull, let's see the numbers year-to-date improve. At least today's numbers are up:

DJIA*11602.50 135.16 1.18%
Nasdaq*
2303.96 24.43 1.07%
S&P 500*
1277.00 17.00 1.35%
Russell*716.82 19.19 2.75%
10-YR Note*
4.105% -17/32 -0.52%

Financials led a buying rally near the close, just while I took a swim on this hot summer day!
Stocks were trading rather like a typical mid-summer day until three o'clock Eastern time, that is, not much. I suppose it was like a coiled spring that built on its own speed. I don't usually swim mid-day, but I will happily do so again before markets close if this is how the market is going to behave.

Striving for Integrity


Often we don't do as we know we should,

And we know we should do what is right.

We just need to do it.

“There’s a direct connection between a woman’s ability to plan her family, space her pregnancies and give birth safely, and her ability to get an education, work outside the home, support her family and participate fully in the life of her community.”

With contraception, every pregnancy is wanted, and lives are better for people in the poorest countries
