4 Best ETFs For Current Stocks Market

Despite the market's precipitous decline hundreds of new ETFs have entered the market in the last two years. Indeed there are over 735 ETFs today compared to 635 in the beginning of 2008. Many of these newcomers offer you exciting new ways to profit in any market, lower your costs, and simplify your life.

But which of these should you consider for this tumultuous market? 

As editor of Forbes ETF Advisor, it's my mission to help you separate wheat from the chaff and quickly zero in on the best new entrants.  In this bulletin, I'll show you a list of new ETFs available for trading. 

When it comes to finding the best ETFs, we have a remarkable advantage. The secret is our proprietary ETF ranking system. This system ranks ETFs by their anticipated risk and return in relation to their indexes and to moving averages. That's how Forbes ETF Advisor can give you unmatched quantitative and technical perspectives on the wide universe of ETFs.  Then we combine this technical analysis with our time-tested risk-adjusted investment discipline.

And we have a few other advantages up our ETF sleeves, not the least of which is the fact that I've been covering ETFs since their inception, both for institutional and individual investors.That's why many subscribers tell me that Forbes ETF Advisor is must-read guidance for navigating the rapidly changing world of ETF investing.  ETFs now offer you an increasingly complex range of options. Many ETFs are now tied to unknown and complex market indexes. Some promise to double your money when the stock market or certain sectors of the market decline. Others track the price of gold, crude oil and even real estate.  And many new ETFs are from totally new investment firms that aren't household names. 

Just take a look at a few of the recent new entrants…

4 Best Buy ETFs

ETFs simply offer a smarter, safer and more tax efficient vehicle for investors.

Forbes has always been a pioneer in its coverage of smart sound investments for individual investors. Long before Morningstar ever existed, Forbes Magazine with its Mutual Fund Honor Roll began rating funds in the 1950s when the industry was in its infancy. Today, the "Era of ETFs" is just beginning and Forbes has partnered with award winning fund and ETF expert James Lowell III, to bring you The Forbes ETF Advisor.

Jim Lowell's 2008 ETF Picks That MADE MONEY:

ProShares Short QQQ (PSQ) up 46.8%

ProShares Short EAFE (EFZ) up 38.1%

ProShares Short Emerging Markets (EUM) up 19.1%

iShares COMEX Gold (IAU) up 5.4%

PowerShares DB US Dollar Bull (UUP) up 4.2%

iShares Short Treasury (SHV) up 2.8%

Since Jim Lowell launched The Forbes ETF Advisor in April 2006, the S&P 500 has lost 27.2%. Jim's portfolios have lost much less than the market, from his Growth & Income Portfolio (-15.8%) to his Growth Portfolio (-23.7%).

Why Exchange Traded Funds?

Exchange-Traded Funds (ETFs) are baskets of top stocks in a variety of broad market, sector or capitalization categories, similar to mutual funds.

But here is where ETFs and Mutual Funds differ:

ETFs are more cost-effective because of lower operating and transaction costs.

ETFs are more liquid and flexible than funds. Like top stocks they can be traded anytime during the market day.

ETFs are more tax-efficient because they typically have very low distribution rates.

ETFs often have better performance than index funds because they are more efficient.

ETFs offer investors a more liquid and efficient way to access hot overseas markets like Brazil, Russia, India and China.

The Forbes ETF Advisor is designed to maximize investor profits and minimize risk using ETF portfolios.

Edited by mutual fund, sector trading and ETF expert Jim Lowell, The Forbes ETF Advisor offers investors a comprehensive guide to the rapidly expanding universe of exchange traded funds. In monthly issues and with weekly hotline alerts investors will profit from timely advice revealing which market leading ETFs are "Buys" and which laggards are "Sells."

The advisory service will also feature Jim Lowell's expert market commentary and his new buy and sell recommendations for four model ETF portfolios:

Global Growth,


Growth and Income,

Global Quant,

And Long/Short

Each monthly issue will also shine a spotlight on one ETF Jim is currently recommending as well as detailed analysis of an entire group of ETFs like international or biotech funds.

And for those still climbing the ETF learning curve, The Forbes ETF Advisor also contains a section entitled ETF University. All this plus Jim Lowell's rankings found in his ETF data tables and weekly email and telephone hotlines.

Your risk-free subscription includes three FREE Bonus Reports:

1. 4 Best Buy ETFs for the Current Market - just published!

2. ETF Investing from Scratch, Jim's concise guide to successful ETF investing.

3. Our members-only Forbes ETF Advisor's Rankings, showing you the best-performing ETFs.

The Forbes ETF Advisor benefits from Jim Lowell's experience in developing his own Technical Trading System for funds and ETFs. This proprietary quantitative system is the product of Jim Lowell's 20 years of investment research. It has a proven track record for maximizing total returns while minimizing your downside risk.
