The news on Wall Street has been good while the price action in major indexes has been back-and-forth throughout the week. Stocks are looking to end the week on a high note after digesting better-than-expected consumer confidence data as well as GDP results earlier in the week. At the back of this bullish momentum, the leading issuer behind emerging markets products, Emerging Global, is moving closer to debuting a diverse basket of 11 ETFs.
