IndexUniverse had a post the other day looking at some ETFs that are in the pipeline. The article seemed to imply that the ten funds the profiled would begin trading soon but I am not sure if that is the case (and maybe the article was not implying they'd be out soon).
Kind of related from the list is the Merk Hard Currency ETF (HRD) which will apparently own both currencies (active management) and gold. WisdomTree has a couple of interesting currency funds and this seems like it will cover some of the same ground but again HRD will be actively managed.
As mentioned above we are in South Dakota for the week, we got here yesterday. We're staying at Custer State Park for two days and then on to the Black Hills for two days. The scenery here is amazing and of course there is some old-west history to check out too.
