Lockstep Performance by ETF’s

In doing some reading after the market I came across an interesting post from Bespoke Investment Group titled Key ETF Performance.  The table shows the performance of the ETF’s after yesterday’s decline in the markets.  In looking at this table, it looks as if everything moved in alignment the way it is expected:

  • Sectors – the worst performers were Energy and Materials while the best performers were Consumer Staples and Utilities (the flight to safer assets)
  • Euro down and Yen up
  • Japan was best global ETF performer while Russia, correlated to natural resources, was the worst performer
  • Bonds, which are negative YTD, saw gains across the group

Even though it was the biggest down day of the year on volume above average, I like to see that these key ETF’s performed as expected on a macro scale.
