It's Turning Into a Brutal Game of Survivor for ETFs
« on: October 08, 2015, 06:02:11 PM »
Only 10 percent of exchange-traded funds are in positive territory, after market selloffs in the U.S., Europe, and Asia, and a plunge in commodity prices.   Oh no, whatever shall I do?

I couldn't decide if this should be in the anti-mustachian wall of shame and comedy or over here.

Definitely anti-mustachian wall of shame and comedy. (Managed funds? Chasing speculative above-market returns? Who gives a shit?)

Based on the article title, I was expecting it to be about ETFs shutting down entirely or something.

Let's wildly invest in Irish ETFs because we don't understand "past performance is not a guarantee of future returns!"

I was kind of hoping that this would be about low-cost etfs edging other options out of the picture.

Oh well.
