- Happy New Year + Twitter Updates!
Hi everyone, hope you've had a great break over this last few weeks. It's been some time since we had our last chat but luckily the markets haven't had too much craziness (unless you've been in bitcoin related ETFs like CRYP or DIGA). Notice that I mentioned exposed? That's because neither we nor our friends in the US have a spot Bitcoin/crypto ETF (e.g. an ETF that tracks the actual Bitcoin/Ethereum or other coins directly), rather we have indirect exposure here via ETFs holding companies involved in the crypto space or which hold crypto directly. In the US, they've got the futures based crypto ETFs. Anyway, before we digress further, the update today is to highlight that we've published on the ETFtracker Twitter page (did you know we're on Twitter?) a few "how to" guides. These are focused on how to use the ETF Snapshots feature as well as the Holdings Comparisons. Thee hafve been done in the style of a Tweet thread so that each instruction/message is short, sharp and sweet (making it easy to follow along). Here's the first one on snapshots https://twitter.com/ETFtrackerAU/status/1482161811608997890 and the next one on holdings comparisons - https://twitter.com/ETFtrackerAU/status/1481228606089367554 Make sure to follow us on Twitter here https://twitter.com/ETFtrackerAU and stay tuned for further ETF analysis and other updates.
- Exchange Traded Fridays - Issue 22 - 17th December 2021
Welcome to Issue 22 of Exchange Traded Fridays for the week ending 17th December 2021. This is our final newsletter for the year and we'll pick things up again in January 2022.

In this week's news we were able to give our final update of the year on ausbiz (see here) with new data out from the ASX showing that FUM on their exchange grew to $129.9 billion in November. Coupled with Chi-X results from October this means we're at $132.2 billion and should get a full picture of November in the next week or so. Apart from that we saw a lot of market wrap ups for the end of the year as well as looking ahead to what themes are likely to play out well into 2022. We'll see you more in the new year but in the meantime, happy holidays, happy investing and make sure you always look under the hood! What's in this newsletter?

- ETFtracker | Google Finance Price Comparisons
Google Finance Comparisons Curated list of Australian ETF price comparisons on Google Finance Update 22nd September 2021 - added NDQ back to Technology Group 1 and removed ASIA which, whilst technology focused too, makes more sense amongst Asian names where it already is in a group. The following is a list of different Australian ETF price comparison groupings as per Google Finance. Google Finance does not cover all Australian ETFs (some commodity and all Active ETFs are not shown) but it does provide some good insights based on what it does cover. There are about 150+ that it does show (out of over 240). The following list covers 82 of these 150+ and they have been grouped according to different themes. Google Finance only allows for the comparison of 5 securities at a time so where there are multiple ETFs in the same category, we have made some of these groups according to similar market cap, region or other ways that make sense. To see if an ETF you are interested in is listed, hit CTRL+F to search for it or use the menu navigation butons below.

- New portfolio review requestIn Portfolios and ETF analysis·18 October 2021New request came through from a member on their 5 ETF holdings so we'll take a look below - this is all data driven in terms of what we see with ETF holdings, performance and other metrics. Any opinions here are also not meant as financial advise but merely our review of what the data looks like for these particular ETFs. The ETFs mentioned are ASIA, ESPO, HGEN, IIND, QUAL First of all looking at holdings compared to each other we can see the following - there is not much in the way of crossover amongst them which is goo as having a lot of crossover would make you question whether you should have just bought 1 of the 2 ETFs if 2 were quite similar. In terms of reviews for these, some are already videos we've done so I post those as well a brief comment above. ASIA - popular way to play Asian tech but has been unloved as China cracks down on tech firms. Whether now is the right time to buy is not ours to say but if you believe the Evergrande crisis is behind us it is trading off its highs so recovery back to where it was could play in your favour. ESPO - newr but popular and seeing more flows go into it though did see a dip in September numbers. If you like gaming this is a good way to play the theme. QUAL - part of VanEck series on smart-beta. Well liked and there are good arguments for why quality is a better factor than value or momentum. Lot of good videos on this on ausbiz too. HGEN is a bit newer so no monthly ASX data yet for it but since it tracks a benchmark (the Solactive Global Hydrogen ESG Index - see https://www.solactive.com/Indices/?index=DE000SL0D1G5), would be worthwhile looking at performance of that. Past performance is not a guide for future but still interesting to see track record there. More info here https://www.etfsecurities.com.au/product/hgen IIND we haven't done a video for but from what we can see on our snapshots below, it looks positive. It's only been around since late 2019 but had some good returns. It's seen a jump in inflows in September and has just crossed the 1,000 trades per month threshold showing that it's becoming more widely used amongst ETF traders. Decreasing spread % is good and strong liquidity compared to peers. It does have a higher than average MER (average across all ETFs is 0.51/0.52% and this is 0.8%) but otherwise this is good. One big thing we notice with all these is they focus on specific sectors/themes and it does not follow the broad based core coupled with pointed thematic satellite investments (look up core-satellite investing for more). Thtat's not something that you have to follow but core investing in something broad based is a good hedge against risk but each to their own. Holdings look diversified and these ETFs have historic performance and other metrics that show these ETFs have been getting popular so if that's the belief that the industries these ones are in will continue then it's certianly worth investigating further, You can view all the ETF analysis videos on our YouTube page playlist for it https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y4KHH6TLfkk&list=PLjC6E9VHX9Hh7Fa8Csa2hlWJmLVcONo01&ab_channel=ETFtracker We also publish these on our Instagram page too - https://www.instagram.com/etftracker/ If you're looking at something like this we hope its also helpful for you too.1241
- ETF portfolioIn Portfolios and ETF analysis·13 September 2021Hi there, Just looking up setting my ETF portfolio. Thinking a couple main options: 1. VGS 40%, VAS 30%, VGAD 20% and VGE 10% (or should I just make VGS 60%) 2. VDHG (100%) I like the option of VDHG because it has many different ETF's within it and rebalances automatically. I like option 1 as well because it is diversified (but I have to weight up having to rebalance the portfolio occasionally). And the fees are slightly lower as well. I want to keep my portfolio simple and I'm thinking more option 1 (3-4 ETF's max) but not sure if I'm better off going VDHG with the all-in-one option. TThanks1133
