Kored -- The info is useful and informative. But for some reason HL is only in the middle of the pack. USGIF mentioned by Bottman below, is running strongly ahead. Also compare to the silver miner ETFs, SIL and SILJ -- those are really hot.
Does anybody have info as to why the ETFs are so strong now, but HL seems to be lagging?
Need to look at the complete unemployment picture, not just those who are collecting unemployment benefits. Add in those unemployed more than 99 weeks who no longer get benefits, as well as young people looking for work but not getting hired, and the total unemployment rises to at least 15%. And those who lost full-time jobs and are working one, two or even three part-time jobs, and the situation is even worse.
