Memorial ETFs: Sectors

Preface to all ETF posts this weekend: This is not a normal holiday weekend. Supposedly, when we return to the trading world Tuesday, there will be some resolution (or more chaos) regarding the debt ceiling.

I would also like to note that, as a special this holiday weekend, I am giving away my Joy of Charting book, which I will ship to you free of charge for signing up at ANY subscription level. Just drop me a line when you subscribe to tell me where to send it. As an added bonus, I’ll also provide a copy of my Solid State audiobook for your listening pleasure, free of charge!
