In the last trading session, U.S. stocks were mostly in the green. Among the top ETFs, investors saw (SPY - Free Report) gaining about 0.3%, (DIA - Free Report) adding about 0.2% and (QQQ - Free Report) move higher by over 5% on the day.
Two more specialized ETFs are also worth watching as both saw trading volume that was far outside of normal. In fact, both these funds experienced volume levels that were more than double their average for the most of the last trading session. This could make these ETFs ones to watch out for in the days ahead to see if this trend of extra-interest continues.
(DHS - Free Report) : Volume 3.15 times average
This U.S. high dividend ETF was under the microscope yesterday as about 138,640 shares changed hands. This compares to an average trading volume of around 44,000 shares and came as DHS gained about 0.4% in the session.
The movement can largely be credited to investors’ demand for benchmark-beating yields in a high-dividend scenario. The fund lost about 5.3% in the last one month.
(MINT - Free Report) : Volume 3.77 times average
This ETF was in the spotlight yesterday as nearly 2.5 million shares moved hands compared with an average of roughly 673.280 shares a day. We also saw some price movement as MINT retreated about 0.01% in the last session.
Investors got worried about rising rate concerns thanks to the possibility of faster Fed policy tightening ahead. The fund was up about 0.1% in the last one month.
