Exchange-Traded Funds should be prioritized in investing rather than stock.

Pro

Define ETF:A security that tracks an index, a commodity or a basket of assets like an index fund, but trades like a stock on an exchange. ETFs experience price changes throughout the day as they are bought and sold.

By owning an ETF, you get the diversification of an index fund as well as the ability to sell short, buy on margin and purchase as little as one share. Another advantage is that the expense ratios for most ETFs are lower than those of the average mutual fund.

Con

I. My opponents whole argument is plagiarized

Check it out. I always research on investopedia and PDF traders, before talking economics


http://www.investopedia.com...

II. Stocks have more projected trade value

Simple. Stocks are more traded, and have more projected value. Therefore, we should build upon Nasdaq instead of funding small traded ETFS.

I was planning on writing my infamous long picture arguments, but 500 characters.

Cheers!

Texan, people would consider your vote a bomb. Also, you don't buy stocks with ETF's. You buy equity, but not the stocks that hold them.
