ETFDailyNews.com is a website that provides users one source for daily headlines and information on exchange-traded funds (ETFs). The site contains an abundance of information on ETFs, including thorough information on specific ETFs, basic educational resources and more than 10 articles published daily.
ETF Daily News is not an investment adviser, and the content of the site is not an endorsement to buy or sell any securities. Rather, it is a resource for investors to learn more about ETFs and stay current with developments within the sector.
An essential part of the website is the Basics tab. This section provides readers with articles that will help them learn more about the benefits of investing in ETFs and how they work. Article categories include Why ETFs, Popular ETFs, How ETFs Work, Tax Advantages and many more. Clicking on any of the links in this section will take you to ETF Daily News’ sister site, ETFzone.com, which also provides extensive education sources on the subject.
On the left-hand side of the site, users can search through ETF articles based on class, such as: bond, commodity, currency, regional or a wide variety of sectors.
The ETF Screener is a highlight of the site; it is a free tool that searches and analyzes all ETFs currently traded in the U.S. You can search based on the issuer, the leverage, type, asset type, asset size, whether the fund is diversified or optionable, its expense ratio or total assets. All ETFs that pass a particular screen can then be further analyzed by clicking on them. The next screen shows pricing data, an overview of the fund as well as all related news articles. Charts that are provided include simple line, intraday, candlestick, directional bar and high/low/close. Each chart can be redrawn to show one-day, five-day, three-month, six-month, one-year, five-year and 10-year data.
The Fundamentals tab shows performance, fees and expenses, valuation, dividend and volatility of the fund. Technical information is also provided regarding the momentum, support and resistance, and stochastic oscillator of the fund.
The New tab has a link for a launch center, which displays a list of the most recently launched ETFs, and also a filing center which shows a list of the most recently proposed ETFs.
ETF Daily News is a relatively new site, but what we’ve seen so far has been very useful. This site is a wonderful tool for investors to learn about ETFs and also keep up to date on recent ETF news. Viewers can sign up for a free newsletter titled Global ETF
