This brings the total of ETFs covered in the constituent list file to 1404, indexes 290 for a total of 1694 constituent lists updated daily.  Within the next few days, two ETFs listed above (TUSA and HIPS) not included in the constituentdata42.csv file will be added.  To my knowledge, all ETFs with available constituent lists are now in this file.  In other words, if an ETF has an available constituent list it is now included.  The remainder of January will be devoted to fully identifying all consttuents of all ETFs and indexes included in the constituent list datafile.

Fundamental values for all new ETFs are now included in the ETF_Fundamentals.csv file (all values updated daily).
