My favorite ETF reads over the past week, along with my ETF tweet and chart of the week!

ETF Chart (Picture) of the Week:  This past week was all about Exchange: An ETF Experience.  The ETF industry gathered for four action-packed days in Miami Beach to talk everything ETFs.  If you’re looking for a recap – shameless plug – look no further than this week’s ETF Prime podcast.  ETF Trends’ Dave Nadig and Todd Rosenbluth, Advisor Circle’s John Swolfs, and I recorded this live at the event (picture below courtesy of Todd) and covered all the key takeaways.  I’ve come across several excellent written recaps as well, including here, here, and here.
