List of Low Volatility ETFs

Updated Sep 16, 2019
One of the most interesting attributes of the investment world is volatility. Volatility indicates the magnitude as well as the frequency of fluations observed in the price of the stocks, exhange-traded funds (ETFs) or other assets. The higher price changes that a stock may undergo in a short term indicates high volatility, while the less agile, stable stocks whose price remain within a close range fall in the low volatility category. While short terms traders who make money on high price fluctuations love volatlity, the long term investors who hold stocks for long periods don't see it favorably. The latter category of investors may prefer low volatility stocks and exchange traded funds for investments. Fortunately, a long list of 'Low Volatility ETFs' are available in the market for trading and investment using which one can take the required positions.(For more, see List of Volatility ETFs.)
