Five ETFs to Watch This Week

iShares MSCI Germany Index Fund (EWG)

Europe remains a notoriously volatile region of the globe as nations comprising the EU continue to work out their respective debt issues. In the week ahead, Germany will be a particularly interesting to watch as it releases a battery of economic data points.

During the middle of the week, investors will get a glimpse at the state of the German marketplace when factory orders, industrial production numbers, and exports data are released.

Germany is often fingered as a point of stability amidst the troubled euro bloc. However, as we have witnessed in recent months, the nation still faces substantial headwinds.

SPDR Gold Shares (GLD)

Although they struggled a bit during the final full week of August, gold ETFs appear to have found their footing, propelled by continued investor concerns regarding the state of the global economic recovery.

Friday's dismal jobs report helped lift both GLD and iShares Gold Trust (IAU) back to previous all-time highs.

There is a chance that this shortened week of trading will be marked by increased volatility. Defensive asset classes like gold will likely continue to be a popular destination.
