The exchange-traded fund (ETF) revolution is here, and I want my name to be synonymous with this rapid change. That’s why, beginning with today’s issue of the formerly named Making Money Alert, the new name of this publication is Doug Fabian’s Weekly ETF Report. While these changes may seem subtle to the casual reader, I […]
I don’t know about you, but I always have at least a little fear in my head whenever I put my money to work in the financial markets. Now, I don’t let this healthy sense of skepticism about the positive direction in stocks rule my world; however, it is just plain smart to be on […]
The question of whether to invest in China is one that engenders many polarizing opinions. For every bull out there arguing in favor of a rebound in the Chinese economy and stock market, there are an equal (perhaps greater) number of bears proclaiming that China’s economic data cannot be trusted and that the country is […]
I want to take a little trip around the world this week by looking at a few key charts of exchange-traded funds (ETFs) pegged to various regions of the globe. Let’s start with the action in Europe via the iShares Europe 350 (IEV). For most of the past year, stocks in Europe have trended steadily […]
The Dow and the S&P 500 are hovering in lofty new-high territory these days. While the major indices basically have done so via a slow grind toward the top this year, it has been a different story for stocks in the emerging markets. Far from a slow-and-steady grind higher in 2014, emerging markets have seen […]

A third of the year is already in the books, and 2014 has been a year of surprises so far. I mean, who would have predicted that long-term Treasury bonds would be so strong this year, with the value of the iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond ETF (TLT) up more than 11% year to date? […]
If you’ve ever been caught up in a case of really bad timing, then you probably know what the Fed is feeling right about now. This morning, we received a dismal Gross Domestic Product (GDP) print that showed economic growth SLOWED to an adjusted annual rate of just 0.1% since the beginning of the year. […]
After a seven-day run higher in the equity markets, stocks in the benchmark S&P 500 Index now have recovered a majority of the losses they sustained during the previous two weeks. The recent buying has lifted the SPDR S&P 500 (SPY) back above its 50-day moving average. The Dow Jones Industrial Average also now is […]
If you were looking for a reason to be cautious about the financial markets, then last week’s action in stocks offered you one giant yellow light. The selling in domestic stocks nearly across the board pushed the major U.S. averages below their 50-day moving averages last week, a first salvo in what could well be […]
If there is one thing that every investor should understand, it is that often the conventional wisdom on Wall Street just doesn’t play out.
