ETF Sectors

Sector ETFs can give us much information about the stocks included in the index. More than the 11 traditional sectors have been added. Use them wisely. Their correlation with the underlying assets can help you a lot. For instance, if the real estate ETF is over-extended, buying real estate stocks or REITs is not a good idea. Alternatively, you can see a grid view analysis of all ETFs in the ETF GRID ANALYSIS.
