A Trip Around the World with Four Key ETFs

I love to travel, but the constraints of running a business, family obligations and the fondness I have for my hometown of Huntington Beach, California, mostly keep me tethered to my personal fort. Yet not choosing to travel doesn’t stop me from taking a daily trip around the world with exchange-traded funds (ETFs).

To do so, all we need to look at is four key ETFs that will tell us what we need to know about what’s going on in the major markets around the globe. The four ETFs I watch on a daily basis (and you should, too) are the SPDR S&P 500 (SPY), the iShares MSCI EAFE Index (EFA), the iShares MSCI Emerging Markets (EEM) and the iShares China Large Cap (FXI).

Starting here at home with SPY, we can see that after a brisk pullback in early August that took the index below its 50-day moving average, stocks have continued to power to new all-time highs. As far as domestic stocks are concerned, the bull still is very much on the run. Now you have to watch the price to see when that bull runs out of gas, because he always runs out of gas at some point before the next refuel.
