Three Etfs To Watch This Week (TVIX, UUP, XRT, CHS, PCLN, ODP)
By: ETF Daily News   Monday, March 12, 2012 1:25 PM
Symbols: CHS, ETN, ODP, PCLN
The commentary and results of the latter will be especially crucial for how the dollar will trade on the week. Finally, Friday will see U.S. CPI figures as well as University of Michigan consumer confidence, capping off a highly active week for this product [see also Five ETFs George Washington Probably Would Have Liked].

SPDR S&P Retail ETF (NYSEArca:XRT)

Why XRT Will Be In Focus: XRT tracks an index designed to represent broad retail stocks domiciled in the US. As such, top holdings feature blue chip firms like Chico's (NYSE:CHS), Office Depot (NYSE:ODP), Priceline.com (NASDAQ:PCLN), and many others. The fund, which debuted in 2006, has approximately $675 million in total assets. Tuesday's U.S. advanced retail sales report will be a big moment for XRT, as it will likely define the remainder of this ETF's week. That report is expected to make a nice jump from 0.4% to 1.0%, a welcomed gain. If these figures come in as predicted, look for XRT to gain some momentum, but a miss or negative guidance could spark a selling trend [see also Highlighting The Kings Of The Dividend ETFs].
