Credit Crunch, ETFs and ETNs

MarketWatch columnist John Spence is back from vacation and catching up on his ETF Investing blog.

John provides a round up of recent events in his post More on the credit crunch and ETFs.

He notes that the unique risk associated with investing in exchange traded notes was highlighted by the bankruptcy of Lehman Brothers, sponsor of three ETNs.

Spence also notes that the Market Vectors Russia ETF (RSX) was caught up in the major sell-off of international and emerging markets stocks on Monday.
