    Are Risks Abound for Europe ETFs?

    The iShares MSCI EMU ETF (CBOE: EZU) is up 11.54% year-to-date and while that fund and rival Eurozone exchange traded funds are trading higher, the region faces significant political risks that could potentially weigh on financial markets there. Europe’s equities also look more attractive, with valuations of European and U.S. equities exhibiting their widest divergence since the end of 2016 on certain measures. According to FactSet data, the Stoxx Europe 600 was trading at 14 times forecast earnings, compared to the S&P 500’s 17 times, which represent a wider gap than its long-term average over the past decade.

    Investors Have Failed to Time Currencies With Hedged ETFs

The book is often cited by traders and investors alike for the many lessons gleaned from Livermore's stock market trials--a mixed series of successes and failures. Livermore apparently never took his own advice.

    ECB Stimulus Measure Isn’t Instilling Confidence in Europe ETF Investors

    Europe ETFs retreated Thursday, following the European Central Bank's announcement of new cheap loans for banks and forward guidance for low interest rates ahead, as traders interpreted the stimulus measures as a sign of weakness for the economic environment ahead. On Thursday, the Vanguard FTSE Europe ETF (VGK) declined 1.1% and iShares MSCI EMU ETF (EZU) was 1.3% lower. In a major policy reversal Thursday, the ECB revealed plans for fresh measures to stimulate the Eurozone economy less than three months after ending a €2.6 trillion, or $2.9 trillion, bond-buying program, the Wall Street Journal reports.

    Eurozone ETFs: Expect More Monetary Support

    The iShares MSCI EMU ETF (CBOE: EZU) and other Eurozone-focused exchange traded funds are trading higher this year. EZU, one of the largest funds in that group, is higher by almost 9% and some market observers are betting on more monetary stimulus by the European Central Bank (ECB) to prop up the region's fragile economies. A frequent battle cry of those bullish on European equities is that the region’s stocks offer attractive valuations relative to the U.S. For its part, EZU has a price-to-book ratio of 1.52 and a price-to-earnings ratio of 12.92.
