October saw more encouraging economic news. World GDP growth estimates were maintained and third quarter corporate earnings reports were generally at the top end of expectations, particularly in the technology sector.

No surprise then that the top performer in the ETF Select 100 this month was the iShares USA S&P 500 information technology ETF (INTU) +10.19%.

Six ETFs tracking the Japanese stock market were also in the top 10 with returns for the month averaging some 7.5%.

There were only three ETFs in the ETF Select 100 which lost ground, the worst performer being the Amundi MSCI Spain ETF, down 0.89% reflecting concern over Catalonia’s declaration of independence.
