Shameless, but informative plug: Easy investing with exchange-traded funds

Oct 01, 2004 in Linkage

I’m going to take this opportunity to plug my new website, If you’ve been thinking of investing, but you’re not sure how, this website will show you how to invest in exchange-traded funds. ETFs are like index funds, except they are traded like stocks. This allows you to invest in broad sectors of the market (example, the entire S&P 500) without having to pick individual stocks. It’s also much simpler to diversify with ETFs, and you can get started with a relatively small investment.

This came about during my research into investing, and I think this is the best method for casual, long-term investors. The reason I started this site is because there was little information out there on ETFs for new investors. So, if you’re looking for an easy way to invest, I hope you find this information useful.
