Keeping it Simple

Investing in some of the newer and more exotic ETFs can be expensive according to Forbes.

The article iShares Exotic ETFs points out that some of the newer funds with a narrow focus carry high expense ratios and trade at a larger than average bid-ask spread.

The article recommends sticking with broad-based exchange traded funds that offer diverse exposure and low costs.  Top ETFs include:

SPDR S&P 500 ETF Trust (SPY)

SPDR Gold Shares (GLD)

iShares MSCI EAFE Index (EFA)

iShares MSCI Emerging Markets Index (EEM)

Vanguard Emerging Markets Stock Index (VWO)
