Sector ETFs To Buy In October

Right now new information is coming at us on a daily basis.  And it’s a challenge to make heads or tails of it.

The environment is so difficult that many hedge funds are throwing in the towel.  More than 400 hedge funds simply shut down and returned money to investors in the first half of the year.

Here’s what we know…

Economic Data Impacting Sector ETFs To Buy In October

The global economy is struggling.  Consumers aren’t increasing spending.  Inflation is non-existent.  And the jobs market is weakening.

We’ve known for some time that economic growth is slowing in China and other emerging markets.  What’s more, just about every major developed economy outside of the US has been dealing with issues as well.

It was only a matter of time until the weakness in the global economy had an impact on the US economy.

Now we’re seeing this impact on US economic data. Industrial production slumped in September and a gauge of future industrial production shows this slump is likely to continue.

And the consumer spending data isn’t any better.  Retail sales grew a paltry 0.1% in September after being unchanged in August.

That’s six out of the nine months so far in 2015 that retail sales slowed or were flat from the previous month!

This weakness is hitting the top and bottom line across a wide swath of corporate America.  We’ve already seen companies like Wal-Mart $WMT and several luxury retailers miss expectations by a wide mark in the 3rd quarter.

The bad news is so widespread that it was actually good news for stocks.

How can that be?

Simple, there’s no chance that the Fed is going to raise interest rates when their economy is slowing and inflation is running below their target.

So, the poor economic data has pushed out the timing of the first Fed rate hike until sometime in 2016.  The continuation of the Fed’s zero interest rate policy, or ZIRP, is being viewed as beneficial to stocks.

Recent events are having a negative impact on the US Dollar.

US Dollar

As you can see, the US Dollar is nearly 6% below the March 2015 peak.  This should help stabilize commodity prices as well as revenues US companies generate outside the US.

In fact, the reversal of the US Dollar is the key take away.  Here’s how you can profit from it…
