September 3, 2017 The Week Ahead
The markets finished off the summer in impression fashion, posting gains across the board. With earnings subsiding attention will focus on the economic impact of Hurricane Harvey, the debt ceiling, and potential conflict between North Korea. Thus far, neither one of these issues has been able to stop the stock market’s rise.
Judging by the VIX the market fears very little these days. The “fear index” closed at 10.13 on Friday.
Here are how some of the most traded ETFs performed over the week: SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY) +1.34%, iShares Russell 2000 (IWM) +2.66%, SPDR Dow Jones Industrials Average ETF (DIA) +0.86%, and PowerShares QQQ ETF (QQQ) +2.84%
