  6. @ Priyank,

    currently, only GoldBees is actively traded gold etf in National stock exchange(NSE). You can invest in gold bees but with caution. You can invest 10-15% of portfolio in gold. If you have any other queries you can post it here or use the contact form.

    out of the following which is best ??

    Most Shares - M100.
    Most Shares - M50.
    Most Shares NASDAQ-100 - N100.

  8. M100 and M50 track indian markets and stocks, whereas NASDAQ 100 follows nasdaq. It depends on which market you want to invest into.
    If you want to invest in broader indian markets, you can choose NIFTY Bees, details of which are given here

    this is very very less etfs as compared to the west.. we dont have pharma, consumer, software etf... we dont have commodity etf except gold.... when will the situation change ?

  10. More awareness among investors required. Also, mutual funds and other institutions should take a step forward and launch new etf products.

  11. on the basis of past returns almost all ETFs earned almost same returns.....which should we chose? and on what basis....?

  12. ETFs are meant to give the same returns as the index/commodity they are tracking. One can choose them, according to:

    1. liquidity( which can be easily bought and sold) - like Goldbees, Niftybees etc.

    2. low tracking error( which reflects exactly the index/commodity.

  13. Are there any silver etfs available in india?

  14. @amitesh kishore,
    there are no silver etfs in India. It's a surprise that no fund house has done anything in this regard.

  15. it has been quite some time since new etf launch. no silver or oil etf, no pharma or fmcg etf, why ?????? these would help investors in taking delivery and make money in the long run

  16. @rajesh i c,

    Yes, there no ETFs launched recently, because of lack of awareness among investors about ETFs. More and more investors are coming to know ETFs now and surely ETFs would be part of everyone's portfolio.

    Silver ETFs is the most expected one and hope some fund house would launch it soon.
