/ ETF Rewind Glossary

The major U.S. indices put in a flat week with the S&P 500 (SPY) finishing higher by just +0.1%. Notable outliers, including Real Estate (IYR -1.9%), Midcap Growth (PWJ +2.3%) and Agriculture (DBA +2.0%), underscored the low volatility in their slight absolute magnitude.

Interestingly, Agriculture now represents the ten-month relative strength leader, followed closely by Precious Metals (DBP) - but there is no inflation, right?

Week Forty-Four of 2010 features national elections on top of an extremely busy economic reporting calendar, including a Wednesday Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) rate decision and the monthly Friday Jobs Report, as follows:

October Monthly Summary

In the end, nevertheless, the bulls prevailed, leaving the S&P 500, Dow Jones Industrials and NASDAQ 100 cash indices markedly higher on the month by +3.69%, +3.06%, and +6.33%, respectively. This left the three major indices likewise higher on the year by+6.11%, +6.62%, and +14.20%, with style and sector performances provided below:
