October is a notorious month for market volatility and declines—the Wall Street crash of 1929, Black Monday on Oct. 19, 1987, and more recently, the 2008/2009 global financial crisis. This year, however, it has been a month of bullish moves. Although September’s choppiness initially extended into early October, the equity market bounced back into an uptrend thanks to mostly encouraging quarterly reports.

Today we review exchange-traded funds (ETFs) that were clear winners and losers in October. Understandably, our list provides just a glimpse on funds’ performances and does not include leveraged and inverse ETFs.

A number of these funds could inspire readers to put together long-term diversified portfolios within their risk/return parameters. We've covered a large number of these funds previously, and we plan to discuss others in the future.

3 ETFs Following The 3 Major US Indices

As always, before we move on to best- and worst-performing ETFs, let's take a look at funds that give exposure to the three most-followed US indices—the Dow Jones, the S&P 500 and NASDAQ Composite.

Despite short-term fluctuations, these three ETFs continue to offer steady year-to-date (YTD) returns.

SPDR® Dow Jones Industrial Average ETF Trust (NYSE:DIA), which tracks the Dow Jones Industrial Average: up 3.9% in October and up 17.1% YTD.
