Excellent explanation of ETFs.
Very thorough. As a very long time investor in stocks, bonds, mutual funds and options, this is a good basis for a beginner learning the ETF scene.

Excellent presentation. I suggest you number the pages to allow for viewers to print copy a specific area of interest;e.g,ETF and ETN Contact Information without havng to copy all pages.

Not sure why, but if I click on table/classification links all I get are empty excell tables with no data displayed.

My compliments to the staff. The excel downloadable spreadsheet provides an excellent compilation of data for research. Well Done!

A very helpful exposition overall.

Just one of the many useful tips is to watch the expenses of commission-free ETFs, which may not yield the best overall return. I had not thought about that.

With your tools I can perform the required analysis to drill down to the best approach for my particular situation. Thank's for all the effort that went into making an unwieldy topic manageable.

Excellent articles, clear concise and thorough. I would have liked however, to see more information on ETNs. I have seen cautionary articles about their risks and hidden tax exposure. They are very different from ETFs and are not backed by any assets (e. g. stocks or bonds) just the faith and credit of the issuer. Personally, I would never buy one.

Why are Blackrock ETFs missing from your listings/tables?

Blackrock owns iShares and those ETFs are included in the guide. - Charles Rotblut, AAII
