Technology is constantly changing and new innovative ideas come to fruition which changes the market place for consumers. Consumers love to spend on the newest trend which is why technology ETF’s should be in your portfolio.
“Thanks to the exchange-traded-fund (ETF) revolution, you now have many more ways to get involved in technology. No longer is your choice limited between risky individual stocks and technology mutual funds with high fees and onerous trading restrictions. ETFs offer a safer, less expensive, and easier way. This doesn’t mean the whole sector is a gamble. Far from it! The pace of innovation is picking up every year. And as the global economy recovers, I expect the technology sector to lead the markets higher,” Ron Rowland Reports for Money and Markets.
