    ETFs have conquered the arena of the financial markets and are highly talked about as the most super efficient financial instruments to a great way of access to the real specific asset class. They have shown their worth as tax efficient products which help to keep track thousands of companies belonging to a respective asset class. Stock markets have been done extremely well in the last year all over the globe. There has been anticipated hope of a better success rate in this New Year for the same reasons. The past year has been a great year for the Balanced Portfolios. These are set portfolios that give long term benefits for much lower volatility of the broader markets, with 70% bonds and 30% of international equity markets. ETFs belonging to the Health care sectors and Domestic/International sectors and energy sectors are placing themselves in good baskets!

    Turmoils in the emerging markets are exciting! Take for example the recent launch of the Apple series. This gave the Samsung a kick down the lane but recent trends are showing the plunge of the Fruit itself! Effects of new products that bring ripples in the sea of investment markets, rise and fall are witnessed with no correlation what so ever. So sectors belonging to the technology investments or as a matter of fact any other sector has their own ups and downs. New packages in the market or new deals in trades are all factors that affect the financial markets and the inflows of funds into the economy. Investments in the energy industry especially in the solar power industry or the oil and gas sector if added to the basket of ETF portfolios can prove to be very cost efficient and provide good sizable returns and income. Not only this, in fact investments in such sectors are capable of being looked at as hedging funds. More over diversification and exposure is guaranteed with this type of exposure. The energy sector has a sub category as well to its credit, the space of exploration and production. Small cap companies are fed by the large cap organizations but the entire asset class has a potential rate of returns. The positive political and economic influences are dramatic factors in placing certain ETF Models in the investor baskets.

    ETFs are not always the best products available. Influences that come from negative indulging can lead to difficulty in the revenues. Lately the serious misbehavior by some Chinese companies had raised an issue among the SEC investigators. The big four Audit companies of the U.S charged with serious incomplete disclosure and listing of faked revenues, were not allowed to proceed further Audits of the Chinese companies and a big question was raised against their trustworthiness. Losing a lot of value in the stocks the respective funds had forced to serve the six-month SEC suspension.

    Looking closely at other factors that cause impacts on the sector ETFs can merely be as simple as climate changes. Interestingly the major winter storm which hit the Northeastern US led to a rise in the value of Natural Gas ETFs. So interesting is the ETF Fundamentals that analysis and reporting can at times be quite amusing. Investors might be looking for drastic trends due to dramatic factors, but simple and elegant factors are also suspected to ride the sailor boats!
