Exchange Traded Funds
Exchange Traded Funds are all the rage among financial planners. The problem for individual investors is that the fees layer up quickly.
A financial advisor might charge about 1% to recommend money managers to clients. The money managers often charge another 1%. This is on top of the ETF fees. The combined 2% in “service” fees is a HUGE barrier to overcome.
Most people can manage an ETF portfolio very efficiently without having to overcome the layers of fees within the financial industry. Our solution is the ETF Global Trends ETF Strategy which provides our unique analysis of internal ETF holdings and provides us a significant edge.

If you are a beginning investor, there is one fund that is easy to begin with that is on the right side of the long-term trends. Read this ETF File I have published at Seeking Alpha to learn more:

The following report covers where we are in the economy and markets. It has become clear to me that another correction is coming of some significance.

However, that still leaves room for the bear market to resume. Speculative excess is […]
Today we game out the potential scenarios for the stock market in the short, intermediate and long-term.

Model portfolios are worth precisely nothing to you. Stocks should not be bought all at one time, neither should ETFs.

One should work for you too.
