Into the Night

By -

Well, I had pulled together a bunch of ETFs, nice and neat, to talk about them, but out of the clear blue sky some kind of rumors about the deal terms of the long-awaited China/US agreement are flying around, the equities are zipping northward again.


Our colleagues over at ZH are throwing cold water all over these headlines, saying there’s nothing to it, but I see double digit gains on ES and NQ, and I’d be flabbergasted not to wake up to the same. But since I went to the trouble of gathering up these ETFs, I might as well share them and say a few words on each.
