In times of market trouble, investors look for ways to limit their exposure while not foregoing returns entirely. Far better than choosing cash in these situations may be exchange-traded funds (ETFs), which are designed to be stable providers of moderate returns. Selecting one or more of these funds allows investors to cut market exposure while still enjoying reasonable returns.
