If markets keep surging, ETFs could hit a $1 trillion in assets soon, according to ETFtrends. Much of it has to be from investors switching from mutual funds, it suggests. In my blog today, I note that Canada's high MERs and high taxes also add to the appeal of this alternative.
Not sure how many here use ETFs as opposed to investing in mutual funds or directly in stocks and bonds. I suspect most here are DIY investors at discount brokerages, using forums like this to validate their investment ideas?
Here's the blog on it, also linked via Twitter.
