ETF (Exchange traded funds) are great vehicles for short or mid-term trading. I use exchange traded funds and etf trading strategies since I started learning how to trade stock market. It is more than 10 years already.
I started with day trading of stock market indexes but later I found that exchange traded funds can be used also for swing and position trading of specific sectors or other parts of international financial markets.
I started to study exchange traded funds. The situation in this area also changed in last decade as a lot of companies issues many different exchange traded funds. We can now trade almost every part of financial markets with some exchange traded funds.
