My favorite ETF reads over the past week, along with my ETF tweet and chart of the week!
“This year has only put an exclamation point on the fact that ETFs are the way of the future.”
“It is clear that ETFs provided a useful tool over the course of the crisis, both to investors seeking liquidity and a source of price discovery, and to central banks as they looked to intervene to stabilize markets.”
“With exchange-traded notes, there comes an embedded credit risk, and so with some of the innovation in the ETF industry, I think perhaps investors are just less willing to take that on when they can capture some of these exposures in different vehicles.”
“While the ETF market remains dominated by index-based equity products, such as the SPDR S&P 500 ETF Trust (SPY), fixed income and actively managed products have been gaining market share.”
“How Robinhood presents risky ETFs and options, however, makes me wonder whether it has created a game in which many of the most vulnerable players may end up being played.”
ETF Tweet of the Week:
Microstrategy literally becoming the Bitcoin ETF the SEC won’t allow.
