    Bank ETFs jump as Fed announces bill-buying

    Exchange-traded funds with exposure to financial sector stocks popped higher Friday after the Federal Reserve announced plans to buy Treasury bills in order to maintain reserves in the banking system. Yields on U.S. government bonds, including the benchmark 10-year [S: tmubmusd10y], have soared this week on hopes for a U.S.-China trade deal. The Vanguard Financials ETF was 2.1% higher late morning, and the Financial Select Sector SPDR was up 2.2%. Banks benefit from higher yields overall, and from a wider spread between the short-term yields they pay for deposits and the longer-term yields they receive for lending.
