This review is from: iMoney: Profitable ETF Strategies for Every Investor (Hardcover)Decent book and nice introduction into the world of ETF's. I personally miss a way to get invested when the market heads south. "How to rebalance your portfolio and enter short-funds?" All the constructed an suggested portfolio's have an optimistic and LONG-SIDE vision on the stock market.

Good introduction to the world of ETFs,
This review is from: iMoney: Profitable ETF Strategies for Every Investor (Hardcover)This book is about ETFs which stand for Exchange Trade Funds, which is nothing but publicly traded funds. The author says that investing through ETFs is cost effective, tax friendly, and less risky because of diversification. They can give investors access to investments that are not available through traditional mutual funds. For example, investors looking to invest in emerging countries such as China or India can do so with less risk through ETFs. The same applies to investing in commodities or currencies. This book does a pretty good job of introducing readers to the fast-growing investment product, ETFs.

Well, I did make some money...,
This review is from: iMoney: Profitable ETF Strategies for Every Investor (Hardcover)THis book was OK. A week after I rec'd it I made 4 trades buying / selling 4 different ETF's- each one only held 1 to 4 days and made close to $1000. The book is a good primer, but be careful INVESTING in ETF' in this volatile market. SHort term - and I mean short term TRADING is probably better.The book was written before all of the current financial mess and bailouts. You can no longer assume anything when it comes to the financial markets. Good Luck.
