    Question to the experience investors concerning XLF

    Over the long term you are better off in an XLF. Sure it may be true that in bull markets your return will be slightly lower than individual bank stocks but in a down market you will have more of a buffer, less of a loss. This equates to long-term success mainly due to compounding and lower management fees.

    You can find a ton of great info on ETF's and passive investing here:

    Take a look around the website and the forum.
