Description

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.


  •  If the market crashes, what happens to ETF liquidity?—Worried about another “flash crash”... and what might happen to your investments if the market suddenly drops? Here’s what you really need to know about ETF liquidity, and how to protect yourself from getting trapped in a fund you can’t get out of.

  •  How commodity ETFs are stealing money out of investors’ portfolios—It all has to do with how these funds are constructed (hint: they don’t track commodity prices, but this instead).

  •  The greatest transfer of wealth from retail investors to institutional investors EVER—It happens every single day because retail investors don’t understand how this common, but dangerous, ETF product works. You’ll learn exactly what it is, and how to avoid using it.

  •  The Hidden Danger in Swaps—What they are, how to spot them in an ETF, and why you should think twice about investing in ETFs that hold them.

  •  Should you use mutual funds or ETFs?—If they both track the same index, which one should you use? Here’s what you need to know before you invest.

  •  4 ETF trading strategies—Interested in short-term investing or day trading? You’ll get the four “must know” strategies every trader needs to master.

  •  Is it better to use options or ETFs when short selling?Want to go short, but not sure if you should use options or an inverse ETF? All you need to do is answer this one question.

  •  The money-making secret hedge funds and institutional traders use when this happens to index funds... and how you can use it to your advantage.

  •  What happens behind the scenes when ETFs are traded... and the hidden implications for individual investors.

  •  How even inexperienced investors could beat 80% of actively managed funds with this simple strategy.
