Really nice investment this is...whatever is called ETF.
I've been playing around on NIFTY ETF's as a trader and due to the recent volatility have made a lot of money.
The good thing is that I dont see much risk here, as the share is not just one single company. It's a index share.
Thanks Sobhit for the useful advice

Wish you all happy and fruitful trading and investing activities with safety! = = = Post a Comment
