I am a new member, I have seen very little discussion concerning the NUVEEN ETFs. Is there any past or pressent discussinos about this group of funds?

to find which ETFs will fulfill my need.

Why would I comment on general data with little specificality!

Jerald from VA posted over 6 years ago:

Good question, Curt. Why indeed comment at all?

Pat. Vanguard has a great selection of ETF's you can buy through their brokerage house at no commission. I use them to support the Wellington (balanced) and the Precious Metals managed mutual funds. They include; Heath Care ETF, Emerging Markets, EuroPacific, domestic and world REITs, Energy and Dividend Appreciation.
I do feel a downturn in all these holdings is more than possible but decided against using a ETF to short. We have no choice but to face the music. I do hold a few individual stocks, but less than 10 percent of portfolio. I believe ETF and mutual funds are the way to go for most of us.

Good article on ETF's. I am invested in gold and silver ETF's(about 15% of my portfolio) and they follow the gold & silver market prices very closly. My investment has grown by 75% over 3 years. I use these ETF's as a hedge against inflation and the Federal Reserve's printing of money.
