China Etf Hedging Costs At Record Low On Stimulus Wagers – Bloomberg

The government stimulus is still much more muted than weve seen in the past, which reflects reluctance to re-inflate credit bubbles, Lascelles said in a phone interview from Toronto last week.

Health Services ETF Could See Profit-Taking – Yahoo Finance

Both Intel and TSM have been market leaders and therefore SMH has been on a tear. The smaller SPDR S&P Semiconductor ETF (NYSE: XSD ) is also breaking out to new highs, though it does not boast a similar winning streak. The portfolio is very different than that of SMH as Intel is not in the top ten holding list. The largest holding is OmniVision Technologies (NASDAQ: OVTI ) at 2.8 percent. Both ETFs are now sitting at extremely overbought levels based on a variety of technical indicators, which should not be a surprise considering the rally that both have enjoyed. The long-term outlook for the industry looks bullish, however buying today may not be the best strategy.
