Today’s ETF Movers

I’ve always liked using ETF’s for tracking money inflows/outflows which can give you a quick heads up on sector rotation.  Using using index charts such as the Philadelphia Indexes are good for tracking price, but don’t give any volume information.  Volume is key because it indicates the conviction behind the move.  ETF’s, which trade like stocks provide this key info.  Over the past several weeks I’ve been developing an ETF tracking system which will be included as part of premium membership at in a couple weeks.  What I’d like to do here each day (or every couple of days) is post the ETF’s making notable moves.  Here are today’s movers:

SPDR Consumer Staples (XLP)  Up .61%,    Volume up 161%
