timA couple of interesting milestones have happened in the market over the past few days.  As you’ll read in my first link below, the number of US-listed ETF’s is now over 2,000 for the first time ever.  Also,  the Nasdaq has hit the 6,000 mark for the first time in its history as well.  Not exactly ‘actionable’ milestones, but interesting footnotes nonetheless.  For any NFL fans out there, Marshawn Lynch (aka Beast Mode) looks to be making his way back to the field as well with a 2-year deal with the Oakland Raiders.
