10 Bond ETFs To Keep An Eye On, From Vanguard To iShares

Interested in bond ETFs? Among all exchange traded products, ETFs have recently became some of the most popular due to the advantages they bring to their investors. Since ETFs behave like stocks, speculative investors can benefit from price fluctuations during the day, unlike mutual or index funds whose Net Asset Value is calculated at the end of the day when the market closes. At the same time, while purchasing even a single share of an ETF, an investor gets the chance to put his or her money into a whole group of securities like stocks, bonds or commodities.

While ETFs that follow the performance of stock indices are considered the most popular, other ETFs should not be neglected.
