SAN DIEGO - (ETFguide.com) - With 39 new launches, April was a busy month for issuers. It is interesting to see that 20 of all new exchange traded portfolios were ETNs. 17 of the 20 new ETNs were commodity linked. ETF issuers are certainly fast to pick up on new a trend.

 

The timing for the second batch of UBS E-TRACS (launched in Mayl) was as interesting as the timing for the first set launched in April.
