Below is an updated look at our asset class performance matrix using key ETFs traded on US exchanges. For each ETF, we show its performance this past week, quarter-to-date, and year-to-date. This week we saw a number of country ETFs post big gains. Brazil (EWZ), Hong Kong (EWH), India (PIN), and Spain (EWP) all rose more than 3%. Domestically, the large-cap index ETFs rose roughly 0.50%, while small-caps and mid-caps gained more than 1%. The Financial sector (XLF) was a big winner on the week, while Energy (XLE), Consumer Discretionary (XLY), and Health Care (XLV) were all in the red. Silver (SLV) gained big as oil (USO) fell. Treasuries ended the week flat.
