S&P 500 SPY ETF Investing Secrets
Against all odds and to the dismay of big mutual fund firms, ETFs quickly gained popularity. Investors have put more than $1.5 trillion in over 1,200 different ETFs. The most popular index ETFs are linked to indexes like the S&P 500, Dow Jones, Russell 2000, or key industry sectors. Educated investors find those ETF choices accelerating while ETF novices are overwhelmed by the selection. Simon Maierhofer, founder of iSPYETF, has been an ETF authority for over a decade. Many consider Simon the guru for ETF investing.
“ETF education doesn’t stop at just finding the best ETF. More importantly it’s about buying the right ETF at the right time,” says Simon Maierhofer. “Just because you’re driving a great car doesn’t mean you can’t get into an accident. It’s the same with ETFs. A great investment vehicle doesn’t protect you from bad investment decisions.” The S&P 500 ETF, for example, is the cheapest and most flexible way to invest in the S&P 500, but buying it in 2007 or selling it in 2009 would have brought considerable headache and temporary losses.
There is no crystal ball for buying low and selling high, but a comprehensive non-emotional, common sense approach significantly increases the odds of making money with ETFs (or other investment vehicles). Simon Maierhofer consistently monitors investor sentiment, seasonal patterns and cycles, and various aspects of technical analysis. This allows him to identify low-risk and/or high probability buying (and selling) opportunities for ETFs like SPY. Simon shares his findings via the Profit Radar Report.
