Over the past five years alone, ETFs have more than doubled in size to nearly $3 trillion. By 2021, that number is expected to hit somewhere between $7 and $10 trillion.
Yet most investors don’t realize that ETFs can be extremely complex, full of hidden fees and tax implications, and potentially dangerous if used incorrectly.
The truth is, if you’ve been told all ETFs are safe, you’ve been misled. Most investors just don’t know enough about how ETFs actually work to make smart investment decisions.
And just like any investment... if you don’t know what you’re buying, you could be setting yourself up for disaster.
In this course, you will learn...
Why most investors lose money with leveraged ETFs—Have you seen ETFs that claim to deliver 2x or 3x returns... and wondered if you should be using them to juice your profits? You’ll learn the dirty truth about these products, and why it’s so easy to lose money using them.
Right now, ETFs are hands down the fastest-growing investment product on the market. Today, there’s more than 6,000 ETFs around the world to choose from... and many of these products are complex and potentially dangerous if used incorrectly.
Which is why it’s so important that you understand exactly how these products work.
In this module... Jared covers the three types of index funds, the nuts and bolts of how ETFs are created, liquidity issues, different ways you can invest using ETFs, and more.
Have you ever wondered what happens behind the scenes when you click the “buy” button in your brokerage account?
In this module, Jared talks about the evolution of how securities are bought and sold, how markets are made, leveraged and inverse ETFs, and the impact technology has had on how ETFs are traded today.
