Scott MartindaleWith about six weeks to go until the U.S. Presidential election, we enter the critical month of October in which Romney will be using all means necessary to move the swing states like Ohio, Florida, and Colorado from blue to red.

david trainerHaving too many choices can be intimidating. And there are definitely lots of choices when it comes to ETFs. For example, in the equity market alone, there 30+ technology sector ETFs, 35 "large cap value," and 20 financial ETFs. A very healthy selection abounds for every category of ETF.
