    Buy and hold this ETF??

    Investors and investment "experts" who believe that stock picking and specialized mutual funds cannot beat the market recommend a total stock market index (like Vanguard's mutual fund or ETF-VTI) over Vanguard's 500 index.

    I am looking for a short term trading ETF to buy the market on the lows and sell on the highs.

    Anyone know of anything better than VTI?

    Since I am watching daily my own (stock picking) mutual funds and individual stocks, it is easy to keep my eye on the Dow, and sense the trend/direction (but certainly not predict the day).

    If I get stuck in VTI longer than I wanted, I don't think it is a very high risk place to be.
