The advent and popularity of ETF's (Exchange Traded Funds) creates almost limitless opportunities for individual investors. No longer do you need to be a high powered hedge fund manager in order to have access to countries in the emerging markets, commodities, currencies, or - just about anything you can think of. No, today anyone can own country indices such as China, Brazil, or India and commodities such as gold, copper, steel, and coal, just to name a few. Looking for global agriculture? There's an ETF for that (Market Vectors Agribusiness - MOO). Do you like the semiconductors? There are a handful of ETF's available (both leveraged and non-leveraged). Want to hedge your bets with a trade in the VIX index? Yep, there's an ETF (actually several) for that.
But with more than 1,000 ETF's available to investors these days, the decision of what to own can quickly become overwhelming. To help with this question, we have developed two brand new ETF Reports: "The Leaders" and "The Big Money Flow." Both reports are free to all visitors and are updated weekly.
