Risk-On Sentiments Back: 5 ETFs Up At Least 7%

Read MoreHide Full Article

Wall Street started the week on a shaky note due to a spike in U.S. COVID cases, which is a potential threat to economic reopening. The Dow Jones logged a 725-point loss last Monday, marking the worst day since October. The benchmark U.S. treasury yield fell to 1.19% on Jul 19.

However, investors shrugged off fears and again entered the market rally with full enthusiasm. The Dow Jones then enjoyed its strongest two-day (on Jul 20 and Jul 21) rally since March. The S&P 500 and the Nasdaq too are in fine fettle. Upbeat earnings results have probably helped the markets to bounce back.

The small-cap benchmark Russell 2000 Index saw the biggest rebound with a 1.7% gain. The 10-year yield too jumped back to 1.30%. Many of the stocks that were hit the hardest on Jul 19, on concerns about the COVID-19 Delta variant, bounced back in the days that followed. Airlines and cruise companies spearheaded the revival.

Against this backdrop, below we highlight a few ETFs that gained 7% or more on Jul 21.
