Welcome to ETFLogic’s Weekly Newsletter.

We look back at last week’s flows, provide details on new ETF launches and include a timely data point or tool from the ETFLogic Insights Platform.

On Sunday President Trump announced that he would be pushing back his original deadline to increase tariffs on nearly $200 billion in Chinese goods after a week of trade talks between US and China officials.  And with Trump off to Vietnam to meet North Korean leader Kim Jung Un tomorrow, we can only hope there is more good news of peace to come.

And while only time will be able to tell how this will all play out for the market in the future, we can definitely share how ETF’s played out in the past (specifically last week).  9 of the top 10 performing US listed Equity ETFs were China related.
