In the following video, Fool markets analyst Mike Klesta talks with Fool contributor Dan Caplinger about some of the most popular exchange-traded funds. With a variety of ETFs tracking highly followed market benchmarks like the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJINDICES:^DJI), it's easier than ever for investors to get broad-based exposure to the stock market.
Mike and Dan discuss three major-market ETFs that cover the Dow, the S&P 500, and the Nasdaq 100, going over the differences among the ETFs and the advantages and disadvantages of each. In addition, Mike asks Dan about ETFs that go beyond the stock market to cover other assets like commodities. Dan then concludes by telling you how you can obtain these and other ETFs for your own portfolio.
