Benefits of ETFs

What are the benefits of exchange traded funds trading as stocks?
The unique “exchange traded” structure offers several advantages to ETF investors:
1) buy and sell a basket of stocks at any time during the trading day
2) instantly get exposure to a portfolio of stocks or bonds
3) buy on margin
4) sell short, even on a downtick
5) no sales loads, although brokerage commissions will apply
6) lower fees
7) tax efficiencies
