    Help me understand S&P 500 EFT's

    So I am trying to understand this. I invested in two ETF's, the Satrix S&P 500 and Sygnia S&P 500. The same amount, same time - about a week ago. Sygnia has lower fees. Both are up. Satrix is higher at the moment, about 1,1 percent more that the Sygnia fund. Why ?
