best performing financial ETFs today
The financial services sector is a very significant sector of the US economy. Look no further than the financial crisis and concepts such as, "too big to fail" to make that point. Generally speaking, the financial sector tends to perform well when the yield curve is steep (i.e. short-term rate significantly lower than long-term rates) which allows these institutions to borrow at low short-term rates and provide loans at the higher long-term rates. The financial sector also tends to perform well during good economic times when there are relatively more capital projects and investment opportunities. There are dozens of financial sector ETFs to simplify investing in this sector from ETFs that invest in the financial sector as a whole in addition to ETFs that are more specialized by focusing on banking, insurance, brokerage, private equity, etc.

The following table lists the 30 best performing financial exchange-traded funds. The table
includes and can be sorted on: ETF ticker symbol, ETF name, fund orientation, and one-day gain rank as well as the financial ETF's one-day, one-month, and 12-month percent change. For summary statistics of these 30 best performing financial ETFs today as well as how they compare to the S&P 500, simply scroll down to view the summary table. This table is updated every day after the close.

FYI -- Orientation refers to the degree of the exchange-traded fund's leverage in addition to whether or not the ETF is an inverse fund. For example, a 2x ETF that tracks the S&P 500 will show a gain of 2% if the S&P 500 is up 1%. A -2x ETF that tracks the S&P 500 will show a loss of 2% if the S&P 500 is up 1%. The following table includes both leveraged and inverse ETFs.
