    Hi Gang,

    I just stumbled upon a great presentation put on by the ASX that explains the myths about ETF lack of liquidity and other information about them.

    Go to:

    Listed Managed Investments - LMIs, fund manager, diversify investments - ASX

    and select "Getting Started: Building your portfolio using Etfs".

    The "Questions to the Panel" is excellent and the most informative.

    I'm actually becoming quite a fan of these products now.

    Purchased some STW in the SMSF the other day. Again a long term holding so I'm not concerned about market volatility in the short to medium term.

    Cheers - Gordon

    Interesting listening.
    Are all ETF's priced in US dollars? ie is there any currency risk associated with purchasing STW?
    Also, what's the easiest way of adding STW to a margined portfolio?
    Could I ask the margin lender to purchase for me, or would I have to purchase myself through commsec and then transfer them over?
    Thanks
