5 Winning ETFs of Last Week That Were Up At Least 2.9%

Wall Street was subdued last week due to the Fed’s taper talks. The spread of the COVID-19 delta variant and China's persistent crackdown on its tech sector also weighed on the global markets. The S&P 500, the Dow Jones and the Nasdaq have lost 0.6%, 1.11% and 0.7% last week.

Investors’ sentiment, however, restored to close out the week after Dallas Federal Reserve President Robert Kaplan said he could adjust his views on the Fed QE tapering if the Delta variant wreaks havoc on the economy, as quoted on the Street.com article. As a result, indexes gained handsomely on the final day of the week and lowered weekly losses. Notably, Kaplan said earlier this month he wanted a QE tapering announcement as early as in September.

Against this backdrop, below we highlight a few winning ETFs of the last week.
