  1. loved the video! i have a video that talks about the same stuff! it'd be great if you could check it out! keep up the great work! 🙂

  2. Great video. Our team at ETFguide publishes educational videos about ETF investing and the latest trends. Feel free to check out our videos and our site. Thanks!

  3. it doesn't explain what etfs are…how they're made? whose In charge? what moves them?…you just explained what to do with them but not how them came to be.

  4. This is much more easier to understand than those 10 mins explanation. at least I have some idea now. pretty information for really immature beginners like me.

  5. WOW, now i know an ETF and can go invest in one or more….thanks for making this simple and visual. Other videos leave me more confused than before…..this is amaxing give us more , more, more !!!!

  6. Thank you so much is an ETF guaranteed anyway that it will follow the index. for example the GLD ETF is it going to eat that it will follow the price of gold?

  7. Please check out this video about ETFs and mutual funds. This is very short and informative video

  8. Selecting ETFs Based on Cost Is Like Buying a House Based on Price per Square Foot

  9. I have tried buying and selling individual stocks, and got into reading prediction reports and company earnings. I found myself staring at line graphs, waiting for the right time to buy and sell.. it was extremely stressful, and was affecting my job.

    Unless you are willing to put in large amounts of time and effort into researching the right stocks, you can buy ETFs offered by investment firms that have teams of people research the best stocks that fit a specific sector. For an extremely small fee, you can feel confident investing in the stock market without having to spend as much time researching it.

    I would liken it to a mutual fund, except you can buy and sell as much as you want, whenever you want, and there are no caps as to how much you can make per year. You retain relative control of your money while also relying on the knowledge of financial professionals.
