In the latest edition of the ETF Series, we take a look at a struggling sector. If you missed the latest issue, we took a look at the ticker XLF, which is a sector fund that focuses on financials. This edition, we take a look at XRT, which is the SPDR product that focuses on retail. Retail has been struggling this year and continues with the latest store to close being Toys R Us. With this sector seemingly a minefield, looking at this particular ETF can allow you to gain exposure without the company specific risk, which can prove to be costly in the current market climate.
