Mutual Funds, Hedge Funds and ETFs

What's the difference between how a brokerage transaction works with traditional mutual funds vs an ETF?

An ETF trades like a stock, so you pay the standard trade fee to buy and sell.

If you are going to buy mutual funds, I would do it through the mutual fund company and bypass the broker.

Would a city buy government securities through mutual funds in a managed account from a person w/ a series 65?


In the first place, government bond funds--actually, any type bond mutual funds--are lousy investments with great risk of principal since the mutual fund is perpetual. Your money doesn't "mature", and when bond prices decline it is the government bonds that take the biggest hit because they have less credit risk. Market risk is HUGE.

Tax implication if an NRI invests in shares of non listed company?

While many Non-Resident Individuals (NRIs) are located out of India, they might be well aware about the long term growth story of India and the growth prospects of Indian equity markets.

Short term investments?

Okay so I entered a Stock Market simulator competition for this club I'm in at school and I really want to do well. I have until december 16, 2011 to beat the S&P 500 index by as much as we can.

How "safe" is ProShares Ultra Silver (AGQ)?

I'm looking to get into the silver market, and was looking at ProShares Ultra Silver (AGQ). It gives 2x the return of silver. I know it's not recommended to buy & hold this because of decay, but I'm fine with that, and the decay is really nominal. If I can get a 70% return from AGQ instead of a 40% return from SLV, it's still worth it for me. Worst case scenario and hypothetically, if ...

Good finance books (Mutual fund)?

I'm a Junior in High school, and I have been interested in finance. Stocks caught my attention first; I have read 4 or 5 books by Peter Lynch, William O'Neil, and Philip Fisher. However, I feel like reading more books regarding stocks is redundant. My goal in life is to find myself working within a mutual fund, or maybe potentially creating one. I know there are many types of mutual funds (not only stock investments) ...
