Ten Commandments of ETF Investing


I have been following, investing in, and recommending ETFs since they first came on the scene. Much is written about them daily, but very few articles and blogs provide any new advice or insights into them. However, a recent article titled 10 Commandments of ETF Investing published by ETF Database - The Guide to ETF Investing provided 10 well written commandments, that all ETF investors should follow. They are:

  • Honor Thy Expense Ratio
  • Consider The Total Cost Of ETF Investing
  • Thou Shall Not Use Market Orders Recklessly
  • Thou Shall Not Covet Your Neighbors Weighting Methodology
  • Thou Shall Not Bear False Witness Against ETFs
  • Thou Shall Not Make Wrongful Use of The Name "ETF"
  • Thou Shall Not Use Liquidity Screens
  • Not All ETFs Are Created Equally
  • Thou Shall Buy Commodity ETFs (But Only If You Truly Understand Them)
  • Thou Shall Take Advantage of Free ETF Resources
