MasterDATA’s Complete ETF Download List Now Classifies Each ETF Into One Of 5 Categories

Our Complete ETF Download List now categorizes ETFs and Closed End Funds into the following five categories:

US Listed Stocks ETF:  All constituents trade on a US exchange.  ETFs with this classification may be considered for inclusion in MasterDATA’s index / ETF compilation list.

Non-US Listed Stocks ETF:  One or more of the constituents do not trade on a US Exchange.  ETFs with this classification can not be considered for inclusion in MasterDATA’s index / ETF compilation list.

Bond Based ETF:  The constituent list contains government and / or corporate debt instruments.  ETFs with this classification can not be considered for inclusion in MasterDATA’s index / ETF compilation list.

Commodity Based ETF:  This classification of ETF has no constituents but is structured to reflect the valuation of a commodity such as gold, silver, oil or interest rates.  ETFs with this classification can not be considered for inclusion in MasterDATA’s index / ETF compilation list.

Closed End Fund:  While often very similar in structure and trading to many ETFs, these funds (sometimes referred to as Closed End ETFs) are considered  traditional mutual funds but with a fixed number of outstanding shares.  ETFs with this classification can not be considered for inclusion in MasterDATA’s index / ETF compilation list.
